I told you I’d be giving more coverage of the 360′s little musical cousin, the Zune. If you remember, the new 80 gig and 8 gig models are due next month and before their release, these new accessories will be available. I’m already debating on shattering my daughter’s piggy bank to grab one so I can finally get my taste of Zune and these new goodies.
The list of new partners providing accessories for the Zune include 3rd-party entries from Altec Lansing Techologies, Agent 18, Belkin and many more. And the new goodies include a new AV pack ($99.99), Altec Lansing Speaker Dock ($99.99), and a Belkin Sport Armband ($29.99) for the runner in you. You can check out the entire list of new digs coming at the official press release here.
“Zune is committed to providing customers with choice,” said Scott Erickson, senior director of product management for Zune. “In addition to offering choice among Zune media players, we have also enhanced our accessories program to ensure that Zune users can choose from a robust line of high-quality accessories.”
I’m off now to see exactly how much little piggy has on the necessary $250 I need for the 80gig Zune.
