While the official launch date for the new Microsoft Zune is set for tomorrow 11-14, it seems some overzealous store manager at one Best Buy store has put the Zune on the shelves early.

The Zune is selling for $249 and it seems Microsoft is trying to talk up the social aspects of the Zune and even plastered "Welcome to the social" on the box. One of the guys over at DailyTech bought an early release Zune and was promptly greeted by a software installation error.The exact cause of the error is unknown with the DailyTech thinking it may be because the Zune Marketplace the software connects to is not open until tomorrow. The image accompanying the error message is equally as puzzling with one Asian female apparently suffering from a punch to the spleen as the other two women fight over who gets to use the Zune and who gets stuck with the crap iPod.
