Pink Zunes arrive

Amazon.com’s taking orders for the pink Zune, but the Zune’s PR team wouldn’t comment.

“We are actually not confirming anything in that area in terms of new colors,” spokeswoman Lane Keough said.

Hmmm.

Nor would she comment on the rampant price cuts. With a little persistence it’s easy to find Zunes for close to $200, down from their $250 list price, but Microsoft’s not saying what’s going on. The new pink ones are full price, though.

My guess is Microsoft’s offering discounts to nudge sales up.
