Here’s an interesting tidbit to get you, Microsoft fanboys, excited. Zune.net scheduled maintenance came out with an update to the Zune software (v126.96.36.199) and it’s got references of Zune Phone. The reference was found in software’s .inf file that lists all the compatible devices with their hardware IDs.
Istartedsomething, who brought this to everyone’s attention speculates that three phone references could mean three different SKUs from Microsoft since current-gen Zune SKUs are listed differently.
Is Zune Phone really close? MWC is our best bet if Microsoft is planning for some hardware action.
