According to a report by Bloomberg, Microsoft will stop making any new Zune models and shift its focus to developing software for mobile phones and video-game consoles.
That’s unfortunate as Zune seemed to be the only device on the market that offered any alternative to iPod. Particularly the latest Zune HD is not a bad device at all. It has been rated second after iPod Touch by sites like CNet. I think Zune HD might have had a chance in the long run. Let’s hope the Bloomberg’s report turns out just a rumor.
