Zune HD to get more colors
Microsoft has revealed in a mass e-mail that the Zune HD, which was recently introduced formally and priced, will be available in blue, green, red, platinum and black, as well as 10 designs, once the device starts shipping on September 15th. The new colors cannot be pre-ordered, and, just like the standard device, will not be a flat color but an anodized metallic one.
"The anodized aluminum look they’re referring to is key to the Zune HD design so colors will mirror this effect," wrote Zune Social program manager Jessica Zahn on her Twitter page.
The Zune HD will be offered in a 16GB capacity for $220, as well as 32GB for $290. [via Crave]
