A case can serve two different purposes. The first reason is almost always protection. The screen especially is always at risk of scratching. The other purpose is looks. Now I’m personally a huge fan of the design of the Zune. I have been since the original Zune 30s with their unique double shot and I love the classy lines of the current generation. It takes a special case to enhance the looks of the Zune and there is always one company that will provide such a case. If you’re not new to the world of electronic gadgets, Vaja’s name will come as no surprise.
Figure 1: Such an unassuming package!
Vaja has a case for all Zune series now available but I’ll just be showing pictures of the Zune 80 case. For the Zune 80 there is only one style available in both aniline and vitelino leathers. I chose a case in passion vitelino leather and no belt clip. The case is simple and functional, with cutouts for a synch cable and the front controls. Integrated into the rear of the case is a stand which easily folds out to allow easy video watching. Now on to the pictures!
Figure 2: The first thing you see when you open the box is the case.
Figure 3: You can see in the picture how beautiful the leather is.
Figure 4: Look at how well the stand folds away into the back.
Figure 5: The stand really puts your Zune at the perfect viewing angle.
Figure 6: Red leather and a black Zune...lookin' good!
This case is available from Vaja for the starting price of $70. This is definitely not an inexpensive purchase but there is nothing that rivals the quality of a Vaja case!
