Zune Wisin y Yandel Launch
Microsoft today allowed little time between a Billboard leak and the official release of the Wisin y Yandel Zune, the latest special run of the 30GB hard disk player and the first to be tied to a specific musical group. The limited edition takes a stock, black Zune 30 and adds a customized back design reflecting the Latin duo. Onboard, the device comes with a loaded advance copy of the group's Los Extraterrestres as well as an exclusive single, music videos, and photos that can be used as backgrounds for the interface. Special content will also be made available on the Zune Marketplace, Microsoft added.
The player currently uses the original Zune software but should be upgraded to share the same platform and enhanced features of the upcoming Zunes due by mid-November. Wisin y Yandel Zunes ship by October 29th and will be available only in Wal-Mart stores, where the price should remain the same as for the stock Zune 30 at $200.
