Any joy in the Zune division?

It has arrived. The limited-edition (500-only) Joy Division Zune, carrying artwork derived from Factory Records design guru, Peter Saville’s, Unknown Pleasures.

It goes on sale when the Joy Division documentary ships on June 17, with all 500 units shipping pre-loaded with the film.

Is this a fitting epitaph to iconic Joy Division singer, Ian Curtis? Is it the sign of Microsoft’s New Order in the music player space, or is it an Unknown Pleasure because no one cares about Zune?

In the spirit of American Idol, you get to decide. Say your piece in the comments below…

Thanks to Pitchfork.
