Zune HD purple and magenta versions arrive

Zune Originals promised us more color choices for Microsoft’s Zune HD PMP, and as expected the catalog has been updated with new magenta and purple versions.  The colors – which join the original black, silver, blue, red and green models – are part of Microsoft’s Zune HD holiday promotion, and the company is also offering free message engraving.

The new hues are pretty subdued – which we’re not saying is a bad thing – and go very nicely with the Zune HD’s angular, almost industrial casing design.  Unsurprisingly Microsoft are also pushing their Zune Pass unlimited music service, too; you’ll get a free month’s access with a new Zune HD, but after that it’s $14.99 per month.

Pricing for the new color versions is unchanged, at around $220 for the 16GB model and around $290 for the 32GB version.  They’re available to order now.  Check out the SlashGear review of the Zune HD here.
