Zune HD inadvertently unboxed in BestBuy video

Not much in there, but it's still a nice box

Zune HD inadvertently unboxed in BestBuy video

Mobile phone boxes tend to be a feat of engineering all of their own, with sliding compartments, boxes within boxes and beautifully shaped foam that looks good enough to eat. That's why an unboxing of a new device is such an entertaining experience.

US retailer BestBuy has been showing off the music and menu systems of Microsoft's new Zune HD, and inadvertently gives us a glance inside the sleek, matt black box in the background.

Admittedly, there doesn't appear to be a great deal in there. Some giant map-like instructions, a USB cable and the obligatory headphones. Not massively exciting, other than the fact that there is also a Zune HD in there - but that is very exciting.

At the very least, the video below is a great demo of the Zune HD media functions, so check it out and let us know what you think - we're still trying to shore up votes for the UK release, so let your voice be heard.

Yes. Spanner's his real name, and he's already heard that joke you just thought of. Although Spanner's not very good, he's quite fast, and that seems to be enough to keep him in a regular supply of free games and away from the depressing world of real work.
