Default New Egg Zune Clearance Sale

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://promotions.newegg.com/NEemail/Apr-0-2008/Promo042408in/index-landing.html?nm_mc=AFC-SlickDeals&cm_mmc=AFC-SlickDeals-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA' target='_blank'>http://promotions.newegg.com/NEemai...-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA</a><br /><br /></div>Looking for a good deal on a Zune? Reader inteller has spotted a flier from New Egg that's currently promoting the <a href="http://promotions.newegg.com/NEemail/Apr-0-2008/Promo042408in/index-landing.html?nm_mc=AFC-SlickDeals&amp;cm_mmc=AFC-SlickDeals-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA">Zune 4 on clearance for $120.99.</a> That's a pretty good price and I considered pulling the trigger for a moment. I discovered, however, that the only color that is getting this price treatment is the pink model. But still, if you want a Pink Zune 4, then that's a pretty good price. Thanks inteller!<br /><br /><img height="94" border="0" width="160" alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/zt/auto/1209069487.usr307.jpg" />

Isn't unusual to have a clearance sale 7 months after the product launched?

I think "clearence" is a bit of an exaggeration - the pink 4 GB Zune is selling from Amazon for $135. This is only $15 off that price, so it seems like like a sale than "we're blowing this product out".

i agree that it isnt a clearance on the scale of discounts we have seen from buy.com, but they are calling it a clearance, so for whatever its worth.

if you combine this with the reports of random targets clearing out Flash Zunes...and I mean CLEARANCE, like $74 for a 4Gb.....I think something is up.

$74 for a 4 GB Zune? Wow - now THAT'S a fire-sale price.

I really don't see any of this stuff as being more than just random sales
