64GB Zune HD and 4.5 firmware now available

Following last week’s accidental leak on the Zune HD website, Microsoft has officially lifted the wraps on the new 64GB Zune HD model and made it available for order. The large capacity Zune HD 64 is priced $50 less than the 64GB iPod touch at $350. Both the 16GB and 32GB models have also been reduced in price to $200 and $270 respectively.

Microsoft also released the 4.5 update to the Zune firmware earlier this week, which among other new additions, brings Smart DJ playlists and Xvid support. The Zune HD 64 won’t be shipping with 4.5 preloaded yet, so be sure to update it once you receive yours!
