Maybe it’s because this is Apple country, but there seems to be no Zune’s available for purchase here in San Francisco. And that’s not because they’ve all sold out, it appears they never went on sale here in the first place.
I dropped into CompUSA yesterday (the main computer store here in downtown, not counting the Apple Store of course). They hadn’t had any come in so there were none to buy. Office Depot on 3rd St, which has them listed in a flyer I saw this morning hadn’t had a delivery either.
An article on CNet confirms my experience, although they claim that Virgin Megastore at the top of 2nd St has them but the store isn’t putting them out yet because they don’t have the right in-store signage. Say what? I might go pester them to see if I can buy one none-the-less.
I’m going to try Staples tonight, which is one my way home, otherwise I guess I’ll have to trek down to BustBuy on 10th St to see if they have any left.
BTW: This isn’t a purchase for myself – it’s a gift.
