The Zune has had quite a life this week. After it’s death was reported, a resurrection occurred. The cycle happened again. Now, for the third time, Microsoft has announced that the Zune is again officially dead. Whether or not it returns from the grave again remains to be seen. With the Windows Phone 7 doing some amazing duties as a music player, among many other incredible things, the Zune was losing it’s place.
We recently announced that, going forward, Windows Phone will be the focus of our mobile music and video strategy, and that we will no longer be producing Zune players. So what does this mean for our current Zune users? Absolutely nothing. Your device will continue to work with Zune services just as it does today. And we will continue to honor the warranties of all devices for both current owners and those who buy our very last devices. Customer service has been, and will remain a top priority for us.
