Red Zune 80 GB On The Way

With excitement for the new Zune picking up, the Zune 80 GB is being made available in red through Zune Originals. This is in good time for Valentine’s Day when many such Zunes would probably be gifts.

With love and sharing as themes, 20 new laser engraved designs, part of an exclusive collection will now be available for a limited time to consumers. The address you can get these at is http://www.zuneoriginals.net. There will also be Valentine’s Day playlists at the Zune Marketplace which can be shared with friends and loved ones through the Zune Social online music community or ZUne to Zune.

Scott Erickson from Zune, compared Zune to a dynamic canvas that is enlivened by the pictures, podcasts, music and video that Zune users fill it with. A customized player can easily be designed using Zune originals. People have new avenues to connect with each other through wireless sharing and the online Zune Social community.

The new Valentine Day Zunes have artwork from Friends With You, Studio Play Pretend, Colorblok and PSYOP. You can add three lines of text to each graphic. Gift Wrap and shipping is free for a limited period.
