So rumor has it the Zune is to be discontinued, likely merged with the windows phone.
Assuming the Zune will just merge into the Windows phone, that gives Microsoft a conundrum as to what to name such a new machine. What name would market better – ‘Windows Phone’ – which conjures up an image of a phone with bloated software, or the Zune Phone, images of a failed platform that couldnt compete with the iPod.
Side note – I am a very satisified owner of a Zune – The software is great for managing podcasts – probably the easiest Microsoft software to use. Sad to see its demise.
