Just a Friday quickie... the rumours of a Zune phone seem to have been confirmed by this reported exchange between Chris Stephenson, GM, Zune marketing and reporters at a press conference, which concluded with Stephenson saying "What I was saying is that a Zune phone is definitely part of the future of this brand. We really don't have any specifics to announce right now."

So it's not likely to be available any time soon (mind you, neither's the iPhone).

Will it be as revolutionary as Apple's device? We'll have to wait and see. But having received criticism for being, um, a bit one-sided in my reporting of the iPhone launch, I thought I should give the Dark Side - sorry, I mean the Other Side - some exposure.
