Valentine’s Day Zunes may not arrive in time, but will be free
Microsoft has sent a letter to buyers of its pink Zune, because the special edition player may not arrive in time for Valentine’s Day. The Zune was announced just three weeks ago and has an engraved heart on the back. Apparently, the demand was too high to get all orders out on time.
“Due to some issues in our fulfillment center there remains a chance we will miss getting your Zune to you by February 14th,” Microsoft wrote to buyers. The company will be refunding the entire purchase price of the special Zune, which should make customers happy even if the iPod alternative arrives after Valentine’s Day.
