The Zune 30 is the first portable media player developed by Microsoft. It was released on November 14, 2006 and was simply named the Zune. After subsequent versions with different hard drive capacities, the original Zune was renamed Zune 30.

The consumer edition was initially offered in black, brown, and pearl white, which came with a "doubleshot," or translucent glow, in a different color, of blue, green, and clear, respectively. Cases are made from a silicone rubber. Controls include a circular controller with four buttons for direction, as well as a middle button to select a song album or menu, a back button to the left, a play/pause button to the right, and a hold switch atop the player next to the headphone port.cite news|url=http://backstage.ilounge.com/index.php/backstage/comments/Zune-interface-features-detailed/|title=Zune interface, features detailed|last=Horwitz|first=Jeremy|date=2006-08-17|publisher=iLounge] The words "Hello from Seattle" are inscribed on the back of the case and it features several songs, videos, and images preloaded on the device.
