Crunchgear, a blog that covers gadgets, gear and computer hardware, claims to have learned details about a Zune mobile phone that is currently in the works...
Microsoft needs to think of its own ideas for once.
That's like saying Nintendo and Sega ripped off Atari because they decided to make consoles too. Or better yet, I guess Sony ripped off Atari too for getting in the console scene. Maybe Guild Wars ripped off World of Warcraft because they're both MMORPG's. It's called business loser. I swear to Zeus, the stupidity of people drives me nuts sometimes.
That microsoft comes up with this idea right after Apple announces their new iPhone???
1.2, phones + mp3/video players have been around long before iPhone. Razr anybody? Just because there's more storage doesn't mean it's copying. Now if MS came out with a touch screen zune phone that'd be copying for sure.
so everyone else out there that has a cell phone on the market are the only ones that made the cell phone. hmmm
I would rather keep them separate please! BTW companies just don't take ideas from other companies. They all at one point of time think of them but its all up to one company to take the risk and challenge of pioneering the idea. EX. Apple = Ipod Atari = Atari Gaming Console Blizzard = WOW they might not be the first but they did take the risks and pioneered them.
MS plans these things years in advance, they are probably only talking about it now because someone asked if they would make a zune type phone.
Remove the DRM and than we'll talk
One of the reasons I bought the Zune was because it wasn't a phone. I still hate cell phones. Don't need 'em. The only time I ever carry one is when I'm traveling... I'm not that important where people need to get a hold of me 24/7.
I just got mine. I don't think i'll be picking up a Zune phone IF there really is one in development...well at least not for awhile.
because I am sick of my I-Pod breaking and was thinking about picking one up, particularly if it interfaces well with the 360. Until I figure out my problem, I have to keep resetting my 360s when I want to stream music through one, then through any of the others I have reset them all over again.
Check out my Blog, i have a Blog about the Zune. You can find the system requirements there, and i have some tips on transferring full length DVDs to the Zune. Plus the Zune has built in wifi, and FM radio tuner! MS is also bringing games to it too!!! Here's a link to my Blog post: http://n4g.com/up/1074/Blog... go here for more Zune info: www.zune.net
Microsoft try this over and over again. They are once more setting up a new business model based on already invented technology, copy it and use their sheer size and incredible funds to run over competition. But it's just business and the same plan is on every company's pocket, I just hope none of them gets too dominant.
its just business, and you can say the same thing about the xbox.
I got a creative zen sleek which is excellent and it only costed £109 as it was half price in Argos but its like £180-£200 now as a newer model has come out.
