It's quite interesting that Target has the retail lock on the red Zune - makes me wonder what kind of cross-promotional buy-in they made with Microsoft, and if the red Zune will be offered at a special price or with some sort of bundle. On November 14th, launch day of the Zune, Target was selling them for $249 but you received a $25 Target gift card with purchase, which greatly reduced the price of any accessories purchased. Maybe we'll see something similar again? <br /><br />Have you been holding off buying a Zune until this red model is released? I know Mike Temporale from <a href="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com">Smartphone Thoughts</a> has been - anyone else? Two more pictures after the break (photos pulled from Engadget.com).<div style="page-break-after: always;"><span style="display: none;">&nbsp;</span></div><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2007/zune-red-off-2-may4.jpg" alt="" /><br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2007/zune-red-off-3-may4.jpg" alt="" />

Oh man... That's one sweeet device. Just look at the richness of the color! No dull white or black on this sucker. :D

The timing kind of sucks a little - I'll be in the US this Wednesday - Friday (6th - 8th). I'm guessing there's very little chance of me finding one of these before I fly out on Friday. :mad:

Ah, puns. Watermelons are sweet too. :D

Hey, black is still hot. ;)

I still love my black Zune, but I have to admit... that red Zune does look pretty sweet.

And I think that's great that Target wanted to get the "brick-and-mortar" exclusive on this. Anything to help spread the word on the Zune. :D

Myself, I'm more partial to richer, deeper reds...it would be nice to see what this thing looked like in person.

I stopped in at the local Target last night - no luck. Yeah, I know I'm a couple days early, but I fly out this evening. So I thought I should try, just in case they had them accidently sitting out on the floor. Sadly, they didn't and the kid working in the electronics section had never heard of a red zune.

I guess I'm stuck having it shipped up to me. Oh well.

So do I, and the Zune isn't released here - the only Zunes in Canada are those "smuggled" in. ;)
