Limited, gold-colored Zune
As part of a mutual marketing push, Microsoft and the Seattle-based Goods clothing store have produced the first limited-edition Zunes of the second generation. Co-branded, gold-colored players are being made in quantities of just 10 each for the 8GB and 80GB sizes, and will be sold only in Seattle next Saturday. The gold is limited to the rear of the player, which also features screen-printed logos and patterning. No prices have been mentioned, but the players are liable to be expensive given their special production.
During the lifetime of the original Zune, Microsoft gradually released a number of unique models to distinguish the player from competitors such as the iPod. These included more widely-distributed versions, such as the pink and watermelon Zunes, to a Halo 3 edition intended solely for members of the US military. [via cliczune]
