It’s been circling the drain for a while now, but is this the final demise for the Zune? Bloomberg’s Diana Bass believes so, at least in hardware format. In a tweet, she said:
Microsoft won’t produce any more new models of the Zune video/music player hardware, a source tell us.
Continuing on to say:
Instead Microsoft will focus on the Zune software that’s used on Windows Phones, Xbox and other devices.
So Microsoft officially declined to comment on new Zune hardware and said the strategy is focused on the whole Zune ecosystem.
Bloomberg has now put up an article to that effect, though there’s no word yet from Microsoft on the matter.
