Zune 80 in Originals

Microsoft has announced that the Zune 80, the company's latest full-size media player, is finally eligible for the Zune Originals program. Buyers of a Zune 80 can now have their player emblazoned for free with one of 27 different pieces of art, created by 18 different artists; alternately, up to five lines of text can be laser-engraved. Microsoft will later let shoppers choose from an additional 20 tattoo-style graphics, which can be combined with up to three lines of text.

No reason has been given for the delay, but Microsoft admits that it prioritized the Zune 4 and 8 over the 80, shipping very few of the latter for the player's launch. The 4 and 8 also had Originals options from the beginning.
