The guys over at Zune Scene are reporting that Microsoft intends to allow customization to all Zune 80 devices purchased via Zune.net. Apparently, the buyer will be able to make several choices concerning color, custom text (a maximum of five lines) and even opt for an etched logo from a bank of 25 preset images. These options are rumored to become present through an, as of yet, undisclosed section of the website, which shall be labeled "Zune Originals." Microsoft are reportedly going to be offering this all free of charge, and we dare say we would be mighty impressed with the gesture. The big M wanted this to be a nice little surprise for the early adopters, so play nice and act shocked if they announce it. Catch what Zune Scene's source had to say after the jump.
"...but there is something that Microsoft is holding onto releasing information about until Tuesday. They have been keeping this info very secret, as they want to get the "bang" effect when it is announced. There is going to be an option from the Zune website called "ZUNE ORIGINALS". People who order their zune from Zune.net, will have the added bonus of being able to customize their zune. This will include colour, up to five lines of custom text, and the choice of 25 preset logos that they can have etched into their zune prior to delivery. There will be no added cost, but it is only available through Zune.Net... ...I do believe that Microsoft will go Ape$h%t if this info gets out before V2 release on Tuesday"
