Zune Team SE Players
To reward its team for the release of the Zune, Microsoft today sent its development staff special versions of the new player, according to Zune business developer Bill Wittress. Staff could choose between orange and pink players that reflect the colors of the energy status bar on the devices. They also feature a clear version of the Zune's signature double-shot color effect around their rims. Although the limited-run Zune is only a gift, Wittress asks for reader reactions -- a practice used by other pseudo-official Zune blogs such as Zunester and Zune Insider to gauge the reaction to the device and listeners' habits. The disclosure may pave the way for future color options in stores beyond the current black, brown, and white options. A full photo of the pink edition is available after the jump.
