Astrology Theme Zunes

Microsoft today expanded on early details of its special-edition artwork by formally releasing its Zodiac Series Zunes through Zune Originals. The custom laser engravings will include all 12 signs of the Western zodiac drawn by better-known graphic designers as well as animals for each of the Chinese years designed by Microsoft's own resident artist Iosefatu Sua. Each player also has access to matching wallpaper on the Zune itself and playlists chosen by the artists on the Zune Marketplace.

All of the engravings are available now and apply to any Zune Microsoft currently sells through the service. Adding one of these engravings should command a small premium above the $149, $199 and $249 prices of the Zune 8 through Zune 120 respectively, though whether pricing varies from other artwork isn't known as of press time.
