Light Pink Zunes Popping Up

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 10:13 AM



The light pink Zune is upon us! Despite rumours about a May release, it seems the light pink Zune is here today in a variety of venues. First, you can buy one today off Amazon.com [affiliate] for the normal price of $249 USD - the listing says it ships in 24 hours, which usually means that Amazon.com has them in stock. Next, there are two ebay auctions (1, 2) up with light pink Zunes, both with Buy It Now prices for $249. I imagine we'll see some light pink Zunes are retail pretty quick, perhaps at EB Games. Anyone seen one in person yet? Pink isn't my thing, but it's nice to see Microsoft putting some effort into differentiation.

Of course, the kind of differentiation I want to see is DVR-MS sync support, better WiFi functionality, and a host of other things...

Limited Edition Pink Zunes Revealed

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Hardware" @ 09:00 AM

"For those of you who remember our post about the limited edition pink Zune, which was given has a thank-you present to the Zune team, and only them. If you were one of the people to go pink with envy and wished you could get your hands on one of these for your much loved wife or girlfriends, you are in luck! Apparently Microsoft has put 100 of these out in the wild, complete with a certificate stating just that. One lucky shopper managed to pick one up at Circuit City and has now put it up for sale on eBay."



Remember those pink Zunes? Apparently, Microsoft slipped a hundred of these limited edition devices out into the open. There's a catch, though. They're all in standard boxes (showing a brown, white, or black Zune), so Microsoft is playing a game of deception here. While one of these candy-coloured Zunes can fetch more than $249 on eBay, I can't help but think that a few buyers would be pretty peeved when they open the box and discover that they didn't get what they wanted.

eBay Weirdness: Customized Zune E-mail Address

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Off-Topic" @ 12:00 AM

We're not sure if this qualifies as amusing or stupid. Perhaps it's both. For a starting bid of 99 cents, you could have grabbed your very own "beam_your_zune_tune@yahoo.com" e-mail address. The incentive for doing so? We have no clue. What's worse is that it's not even a Hotmail address, so it's not really a complete Microsoft piece. Yes, folks - we think this is just the first of many outlandish Zune "items" that will appear on eBay this year. Get ready for some last minute Christmas shopping!
