Default Zune HD Sold Early, Doesn't Work

I gotta take a look at the Originals when they launch tomorrow (I'll post as I go), but I'm hoping for a black 32. Fingers crossed!

The Fry's Electronics around here have put out all the new Zune HD accessories for purchase today (dock, etc.), and have the HD marketing all ready... but they pay attention and don't break street date. All device inventory is secured in the back.

I've had way, WAY too many sad stories with prior Zune launches and them not having it in stock or knowing what the hell I was asking about. So this time around I was very happy to fulfill my Amazon order (32GB) with Launch Date delivery. I keep getting random jolts of excitement just thinking about the FedEx/UPS truck driving up to home...oh the fun I will have tomorrow!

I love being an early adopter, but I have to face the fact that I'm broke....

My Zune 120 will have to do for the time being. Let me see what people think about the new generation first. Although, if they come up with a 64GB, I may take the plunge. My music collection is up to 32GB on its own.
