Zune Going All Sorts Of Crazy Colors

Over the last week, reports have been flying around about Zune’s coming out in newer, brighter colors. At latest, it seems like the pink Zune is real (and in production for 100,000 units) and a “watermelon red” Zune is in the works. An orange/tangerine Zune might be on the way, all this coinciding with a renewed marketing push for Microsoft’s moderately relevant portable device.

Also, given that Apple’s selling tracks without DRM from EMI, Microsoft is trying to one-up them by removing DRM from a variety of partners. No word yet on specifics, but Microsoft says it is definitely in negotiations to push this through with a number of their partners. Also, they are reportedly considering a cell phone-like deal, where subscribers to Zune Pass music subscriptions would be able to get a Zune at a reduced price, or even for free. Considering the Zune pass costs around $180 a year, a free Zune with a two-year subscription is a decent deal.
