Zune Killed Off (Reportedly)
According to Bloomberg, trustworthy sources within the Microsoft Camp (reportedly a ‘person familiar with the decision’) has confirmed that Microsoft have killed off the Zune, at least in the form of hardware (which included the Zune HD). So this means that Microsoft will NOT be developing the Zune HD2, or any new Zune models from here on.
It’s reported that Microsoft will further it’s efforts on the software side of Zune, since Zune already has a large foothold on the Xbox 360, and especially on Windows Phone 7 devices. The other thing is that the name ‘Zune’ might change on those devices as well, a sort of re brand to their latest project. If you still want a Zune HD for various reasons, Microsoft will continue selling them till stocks run out. Or else there’s always eBay.
