MS Astrology Theme Zunes

Microsoft will try to spark interest in its newer Zunes this fall with the launch of its first themed Zune Originals set, the company has revealed at a press event attended by SAI. Where the previous custom engravings have largely been isolated efforts, the new campaign will bring a set of artwork for the players' backs themed around the zodiac signs: at least Aries, Leo and Pisces are confirmed but is implied as including the remaining nine signs.

The new patterns should be available within the next two weeks; it's not known how much Microsoft will charge for the artwork, though the company has usually charged a small but consistent premium for the laser-etched pieces above and beyond the costs of the actual players. Whether Microsoft will keep the astrological signs as permanent additions or as part of a temporary run is also an unknown.
