Microsoft Adds Zunes With Colorful Tats, Custom Text
The new line of Zunes sports a range of colors and is bedecked with tattoos, custom engravings, and other artwork.
Responding to criticism that its original line of Zune music players — available only in black, brown or white — failed to inspire consumers, Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) plans to launch on Tuesday a new line of Zunes in a range of colors and bedecked with tattoos, custom engravings, and other artwork.
Microsoft will also introduce a $249 Zune with an 80-Gbyte hard drive capable of storing 20,000 songs, 25,000 pictures, and 250 hours of video. Additionally, two flash memory-based Zunes — an 8-Gbyte model and a 4-Gbyte model — will go on sale Tuesday.
The launch comes one year, less a day, after the original Zune player hit stores on November 14, 2006.
