The original Microsoft Zune music players have not become as popular as Apple iPod or some other players from companies like Creative Technology or Sandisk. Therefore, their discontinuance will hardly upset anyone, except hardcore music fans.

Microsoft Corp. will discontinue its classic Zune music players as soon as it releases its new-generation Zune HD devices, according to a media report. Flash-based first-generation Zune players will hardly be missed, but discontinuance of high-capacity hard disk drive-based Zune may be a negative news for those music fans, who like to carry extremely large music and video libraries with themselves.

According to WinSuperSite web-site, which publishes official and semi-official information from Microsoft, current Zune models with 8GB, 16GB, 80GB and 120GB capacities will be discontinued shortly. As a result, only Zune HD 16GB and Zune HD 32GB versions will be available, the web-site indicated citing officials for Microsoft’s Zune group.

Microsoft Zune HD will be available starting September 15, 2009, in the U.S.
