Microsoft confirms Zune to go international this year

It looks like the folks at Microsoft just can't get enough of Twitter. There have been many leaks of information over the past few months coming from public tweets by company employees. We recently reported on a tweet from Brian Seitz announcing what we've all been wondering: There will be a new Zune device release this year, this fall according to sources within the company.

One of the biggest problems why I believe Microsoft hasn't made a huge impact in the MP3 player market with the Zune is because it's only available in the United States. Most of our readers and commenter's here at Neowin have said that they would absolutely love to see the Zune device released to other countries. Good news for those of you living outside of the United States.

After doing some digging, we can confirm that the release this fall will be international . While we were not able to get a list of countries that the Zune will ship to, we can confirm that it will be shipping to: Australia, China, and Europe. A company representative told me that there will be far more countries that the Zune will be shipping to.

Stay tuned for more, including specs and pictures (We've seen the internal video!). I'll leave our readers with this: It's slim and you won't need a D-Pad. Feel free to speculate.
