Microsoft ZuneOriginally reported to be coming to Europe in 2008, Microsoft could be bringing forward the European release date for its Zune music player.

Microsoft’s Zune marketing director, Jason Reindorp, said that Zune sales were going well – having captured 10.2% market share amongst 30GB capacity players – and said that rollout to the European market is being considered in time for the holiday season this year.

Apparently the company is planning some market research in Europe first to see if the player will be well received, and if any changes to software and marketing need to be made.

No official announcement on a Zune release date has been made yet.
