BetaNews is claiming that Microsoft's Zune is going to be launched in an October-ish timeframe. Our own tipsters tell us it's more of a November-ish launch, but it sounds close enough either way. The online music service would be called "Alexandria", as in the Library of. Interesting choice. And the Pixas, the second upcoming player, is "Pyxis". Quite possible as well.
