Sometimes given the over-flowery language of Microsoftâ€™s job posts, not to mention how revealing they are, I sometimes wonder if Microsoft uses them to surreptitiously leak news to the blogging world.
The latest one, for a Software Development Engineer, is no exception, and once again confirms the existence of Zune Mobile
Do you love building great user experiences? â€¦ are you a big fan of mobile phones ? â€¦always exploring that cool new feature on your iPhone or Windows Mobile Phone? If youâ€™re a developer looking to have a big impact on a major Microsoft initiative then this could be the role youâ€™ve been waiting for!

I guess for more propaganda by job posting we should keep a close eye on Microsoftâ€™s Careers department.
Thanks Wishmaster for the tip.
