Zune Music Pass Finally Coming to Australia
I don’t know how I missed this but I am really excited that Microsoft is releasing its Zune Music Pass in Australia for $11.99 a month starting on Wednesday 16th November, 2011. At long last, this missing piece of the Windows Phone ecosystem is enabled for us users down under so that we can have the full experience intended with these devices.
Disappointingly, the price is higher than what users in the USA are currently paying (which is US$9.99 a month) and we don’t get to keep ten songs a month either (which is available only to those on the grandfathered original Zune Pass subscription). Nonetheless, it’s better than nothing and being able to stream music certainly abates the problem I have with only 8GB in my Samsung Omnia 7.
At any rate, I’ll be signing up for sure and certainly gives iTunes a run for its money and leaves Google in the dust for the time being.

I was also part of an online community known as the Panasonic Insider Crew in the capacity of “Insider Guru” for Panasonic Australia where I interacted with other tech enthusiasts and find out more about Panasonic's latest gadgets.
I love technology, gadgets, and the Internet and maintain a keen interest in these areas locally, nationally, and globally. I hope by sharing my views on these topics that people will receive an honest point of view from someone with a genuine interest in these topics.
