Despite Microsoft blaming a publishing mishap for the Zune HD page being pulled from the Zune.net site, a post on the Zune.net support site officially confirms the device has been discontinued.
The post makes it clear Microsoft “will no longer be producing Zune players” and that the focus is Windows Phone 7. The service will remain, and warranties will be honoured, but Zune HD owners now officially have a collectors item.
I guess some-one should tell Michael Yaeger ¦
Thanks Theo for the tip.
