Hexus has thrown two interesting Zune rumours together in a blender and produced something rather delicious.
The first is that a Touch version of the Zune player is coming this summer. On the face of it this would seem to be a logical move if Microsoft intends to keep its product line in step with Appleâ€™s. The evidence for this however is rather tenuous, consisting at best of a series of twitter posts mentioning the word â€œtouchâ€ by LiveSide.net contributor Ryan.
The next one is not much better, and is again from Ryan. It consists of a statement â€œBasically when the 3rd or 4th (depending on how you count generations) generation launches this late summer or fall. You will be getting a sneak peak at some of Windows Mobile 7â€™s features a year early.â€ Taken together however one can easily speculate that a new Zune Touch would contain many of the UI features one would expect in Windows Mobile, and would be a way for Microsoft to produce a flagship device with a great user experience without stepping on the toes of their phone OEMâ€™s.
Do our readers think We will see glimpses of Windows Mobile 7 in a Zune Touch anytime soon? Let us know in the comments.
