We have heard constant rumors about Microsoft releasing a phone to try and compete with Apple. Most people have dubbed it the “Zune Phone”. Microsoft has repeatedly rejected the rumors saying they don’t see a point in releasing their own hardware for a phone.
With the Mobile Congress happening next month, the rumors have once again occurred especially since there is word that Microsoft will debut Windows Mobile 7.
An analyst goes as far to say: “Our recent industry checks indicate Microsoft will be debuting its own phone sometime in the next two months…We expect the new phone to debut soon, at either the Feb 15-18 Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona Spain, or possibly at CTIA in Las Vegas one month later.”
This doesn’t necessarily mean that the Zune Phone is imminent but rather the first phone which will house Windows Mobile 7 OS.
This could also mean the LG Phone which is being rumored to come out in August.
We’ll wait till February and see what happens
