The rumors passed around last winter about the death of Zune hardware were not confirmed by Microsoft. Now they are. Zune hardware is dead, but the software lives on.
Instead of buying a standalone Zune player, which almost none of us did, Microsoft now wants us all to buy a Windows Phone 7 and use the embedded Zune software to crank tunes. In fact, if you want to ever upgrade your Windows Phone 7 software, you have load Zune first. Weird.
Zune software will still be available for PCs and the Xbox 360.
Are you going to miss Zune? Do you play music on your phone instead of a separate music player? Send comments to [email protected]
