Zune 120 Now In Red & Blue

Posted by David Tucker in "Zune News" @ 08:00 AM

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105...g=rtcol;relnews

There's some new color options over at Zune Originals for the Zune 120! Unfortunately, neither are brown. (What? I happen to really have liked my brown Zune 30!) But you do have the option of either blue or red Zune 120s. I'm not sure when they might actually show up in stores but if you want one now for yourself or as a gift for the holidays, I think getting the Zune Original is worth it anyway. Its interesting to note that the blue and red models have a brushed aluminum back like the Zune 80 did rather than the glossy plastic. I assume that means that the red and blue zunes will also be a matte finish.

Donald Bell of cnet also reports that there is rumors of a white version but nothing official on that. Clearly a man of good taste as he also wants a brown version. I think we'll be waiting a long time on that one though!

New Zune Colours on the Horizon?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 10:25 AM

Whenever a new version of the Zune software comes out, adventurous individuals engage in what's called "resource file hacking" - they crack open the Zune software files that contain the images that the Zune software shows when you connect a Zune. This is how we've heard about nearly every new colour for the Zune, and history has repeated itself again when a Zuneboards member discovered these new colours. A blue Zune 120 would be awesome, and I'm surprised how much I like the white ones. What do you think of these colours? I think they should release that 16 GB Citron Zune!

Partial V3 Feature List Leaked. Thanks Fry's!

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune Announcements" @ 06:30 PM

"A cool new "Buy From FM" feature lets you listen to FM radio stations and tag the songs purchase when you sync with a PC."

So much for a surprise. Fry's has let us in on a few of the cool features we can expect to be announced this Tuesday, including "Device to Cloud", "Channels", and one I've been hoping for for a while, "Buy from FM." It also looks like Games are coming out of beta, and maybe we'll see more details soon. Buy from FM sounds a bit like the deal between HD-Radio and iTunes, which should be a good competing feature for Zune.

It looks like the long-awaited "Marketplace Anywhere" will be coming too, allowing you to buy songs, sync your collection, and download media on-the-go at any wireless hotspot. And if all that wasn't enough, Microsoft's throwing in a blue Zune8 for good measure. Of course, none of this official, and this Tuesday might prove to offer something that will put all these other features to shame. But for now, bravo Zune team, bravo.

SkinIt for Zune (And A Blue Zune??)

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune News" @ 11:30 PM

If you get the Zune e-mail newsletter, pay special attention to the August edition that just came out. See that ad for SkinIt? $10 colored stickers looks like a pretty good deal. But a closer look at the middle-right Zune (fourth from left) shows a Zune with blue buttons, suggesting a complementary blue colored player. There is no green Zune (just like with the Canadian launch). Could this be an upcoming color option?

Your Favourite Zune Colour?

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Talk" @ 06:16 PM

Simple post. Which of the three Zune colours do you prefer? Note the existence of the colour trim around the edge of the device (green with brown, blue with black, and black with white). Personally, I still haven't decided between black and white. As for the brown, well, that's a little out of my league. ;-)
