I am a BIG fan of the Zunes - have three in our house for two people. Sure….I drink the Kool-Aid, but I think the Zune is a bad ass little music/video/picture player and it serves my purposes perfectly. I have been patiently awaiting the new Zune players arrival and we are on the edge retail delivery. We should be able to pick them up in retail outlets today.
If you don’t mind a short wait, you can order a customized Zune 2.0 player over at the new ZuneOriginals.net site (ahem…..why are we using Flash instead of SilverLight??). You can add text and/or graphics to a 4/8 gig Zune and have it shipped to you (the 80 gig Zunes can be customized starting in December. Some of the graphics look like bad graffiti art. Others look really good. And I know this is asking for a lot, but there are only 46 or so designs available. I know we are going to sell millions of these things so even more choice would be awesome. I mean it is laser engraved….write an app that lets people create their own designs and submit through the web.
Soon to be a five Zune household…..
