Just what exactly are these ladies doing?
Microsoft's Zune reaches some eager fans ahead of schedule

It looks as though some stores have jumped the gun ahead of the Zune's official November 14 launch date. The $249 player has shown up in a few stores across the nation including a Best Buy at the Union City Landing shopping center.

Microsoft is really talking up the social aspects of the Zune player with "Welcome to the social" plastered in big letters on the box. Also interesting is the "Hello from Seattle" greeting imprinted on the back of the Zune player.

Items included in the retail box are the player itself, a soft case, USB sync/charge cable, ear buds, installation CD, instruction manual and the 14-day free trial to Zune Marketplace that DailyTech has already discussed.

Also worthy of mention is that the Zune software struck its first blow on the populace with an installation error (see photo on right). Some have indicated that the error was likely caused by the install program trying to connect to Zune Marketplace which hasn't officially opened its doors. On the other hand, other early adopters have been able to install the software without issue.

Yea but this is on the player, and not on the box. This isn't like the "made in China" thats stamped everywhere. Oh well, I'm just over analyzing. This isn't like yelling out the wrong city at a rock concert or anything.

Well, the Zune has Hello and Made in China both on the same line :)
