Microsoft Adds New Zune Styles Including a Zodiac Series
Posted on November 7, 2008
Microsoft has added 46 new Zune designs from artists to its customization website at zuneoriginals.net for the holiday season. The new Zune designs include a Zodiac Series featuring artwork of Eastern and Western astrology from Catalina Estrada and Iosefatu Sua.
"Zune Originals infuses pop culture, style and art into digital entertainment to help consumers turn their Zune into a personal statement," said Chris Stephenson, general manager of Global Marketing for Zune at Microsoft. "We're excited to add beautiful new designs from these incredible artists and to introduce them to a broader audience."
Consumers can customize a Zune by choosing artwork and adding personal text that is laser-etched on the Zune player. Some of the other artists Microsoft is working with include Dalke, Motomichi, Daniel Jackson, Kenzo Minami, Alex Trochut, Alvaro Arteaga, Emil Kozak, Ippei Gyoubu, Kate Moross, Maya Hayuk, Siggi Eggertsson and Robin Nishio. Playlists from each artist that reflect his or her personal taste are also be available for download in the Zune Marketplace.
Note: Microsoft is no longer making Zune devices.
