Zune Phone … err iPhone!

Microsoft has always tried to copy Apple, whether is the Windows which is a copy of Mac, or to the latest Microsoft Phone in the makin, they call it a zune phone!, it is supposed to have all the features the iphone has + something more. If you recall Zune was microsofts answer to the ipod.

Some speculate that a Zune phone platform would cannibalize Windows Mobile. The images above show the same imaginary device in Zune mode and phone mode. Yes, it looks like an iPhone, but the Zune 30 looked a little like the iPod 30 so anything is possible.


The Zune 3 is also a phone with all the features of the Zune 80, with new features such as internet explorer, wifi marketplace, common phone apps, and more.

The Zune 3 is fully touchscreen, however, the lower panel buttons are touch “sensitive” play/pause/call, zune, and back/hang up buttons that glow, they are permanent (similar to the chocolate’s buttons).

The Zune 3 is available in 16GB, and 32GB flash memory sizes.

Navigating the Zune 3 is similar to the 80’s squircle except on the touch screen.

The screen itself is a high quality, scratch resistant, touch-sensitive glass that covers most of the front of the device.

Around the perimeter of the glass is a glowing light that can be customized to the color of the user’s choice through the settings menu.

The remainder of the device’s exterior is similar to the Zune 80’s finish, including the hold switch to de-activate touch.

Video’s are now presented in high-quality widescreen format.

The Zune 3 is not restricted to any particular network.

The device has external speakers for speakerphone functionality and to share music with your friends!

Now we would have to wait and see if ZunePhone would be a winner for microsoft in the Phone Market.

Nokia, Motorola, Siemens are you guys hearing!! You have now two big software / tech firms for competition and they are in your market!! Gear up Guys!! …  anyways I am happy with my Iphone and I just wish the diesel prices go down !! 🙂
