You can now say goodbye to Microsoft’s classic Zune devices as they will only be available until supplies last, creating more room for their up and coming Zune HD.

WinSuperSite’s Paul Thurott reports that the Zune folks at Microsoft have stopped manufacturing Zune 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 80GB and 120GB models. Those who want to buy (if there are still those who DO want to buy) may still be able to find some in retail stores and Microsoft’s Online Store, but once they run out, it’ll be for good.

The Zune HD will be available in the market starting September 15, with its 16GB model priced at $219 and the 32GB at $290.
