Pink Zune officially on shelves
The newest version of the Zune, decked out in a light pink paint job, is now available online and at brick-and-mortar retail locations.
If you weren't one of the lucky 100,000 to grab a pink Zune at Amazon.com during the , you need not hold your breath any longer: the latest iteration of the player--which is swathed in pleasantly pale pink--is now officially available. You can also find the new color at Circuit City and Best Buy, if you'd rather deal with established brick-and-mortar retailers.
To commemorate the launch, Microsoft is offering a collection of pink-themed playlists--such as "Pink Rocks" and "Pink in Fashion"--in Zune Marketplace. In addition, Mandy Moore's new single "Extraordinary" is currently being offered as a free download.
By the way, if you like the butterfly backdrop shown in the picture above, you can get it for your own device. It's sized specifically for the Zune, but should work for other MP3 players that support wallpaper. Simply visit the pink Zune Web site, scroll to the section labeled "Personalize Your Zune," and right-click the image you want to save.
