Stylish Zune!

The present day Zune has come a long way. From the time when it was ‘zero’ competition to iPod, today it enjoys a relatively better popularity. As a digital mp3 player, Zune gives us music that is meant to inspire and comfort us. But if we go back to Zune’s first model, it was anything but ‘inspired’.

 The first Zune player released in 2006 was a dull shade of brown that aroused much amusement and ridicule. Unpleasant to the eyes, consequently its sales also suffered. However the ingenious minds at Microsoft were quick to make good their mistake and have since then come up with infinitely more appealing colors like pink, red and black for the Zune. They have even collaborated with noted artists to come up with different colors and designs that are etched on the Zune using laser technology to create a limited edition of these spectacular one-of-a-kind Zune’s.

In a recent launch of the Zune in Canada, seven Canadian artists were brought in to create seven varied designs for the Original series. These seven Canadian Zunes along with forty other designs by as many as eighteen different international artists will now be available at your local shop. These will be sold with the option of having a customized personal message that can be engraved onto the casing along with additional tattoos. Both US and Canadian citizens will have full access to these Zunes that are also available online through

The artists in this venture include well known names like Vicki Wong and Michael Murphy, Derrick Hodgson, Mathieu Missiaen, Andrew Pommier and Luke Ramsey.
