Morning Tech Deals: Zune, UMPC, Unlocked LG, Thinkgeek, 7.1 System

• Today's Woot!: A 30GB Zune for $155, shipped. The Zune ain't a bad MP3 player at all, although the vaunted Wi-Fi "squirting" features are pretty much a wash.

• It's a bit of a convoluted deal, with two different mail-in rebates, but is selling the Asus Ensemble Ultra Mobile PC for $860, shipped. The UMPC platform isn't for everyone, but the hardware is pretty nifty on paper: 7-inch touchscreen, 900MHz Celeron, 60GB HDD, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and webcam. You could stuff one of these in all sorts of interesting places. [Dealnews]

• Dealnews also points out two cheap, unlocked phones from LG: the KG270 candybar and the KG225 flip phone for $65 and $85, respectively. Nothing fancy, but unlocked is handy.

• Thinkgeek has a bunch of toys on clearance, some more embarrassing to own than others. Of course the little R/C battle tanks would be out of stock.

• The I'm-told-popular Onkyo HT-SR800 7.1 home theater system can be yours for just $406, including a full set of speakers and a receiver with HDMI 2-to-1 support. [Tech Bargains]
