They might be able to grab more of the market share if they marketed the Zune better. Heck I'd buy a Zune HD if I could, but they're currently only available in the US.

Yeah - what's with the limited availability - here in Africa we buy ipods even though we can't access music via itunes. It would be nice if the zune was sold here.

I think the Zune services are going international with the release of Windows Phone 7, which will basically be phones + zune players. I would imagine the Zune Hardware itself will follow this when they release the Zune HD 2, which should be able to access the international WP7 app store.
