Default Zune Rumor : Wifi Music Store, 3G Zune, & More?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://gizmodo.com/367597/zune-3-details-+-holiday-2009-with-wi+fi-music-store' target='_blank'>http://gizmodo.com/367597/zune-3-de...+fi-music-store</a><br /><br /></div><p><em><img align="left" border="0" alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//zt/auto/1205458797.usr307.gif" />&ldquo;Microsoft France's Francois Ruault seems to be a bit more talkative on the Zune platform than he should be, inadvertently announcing that the third-generation Zune is going to launch during the holiday season of 2009 (which means there's actually no release this year&mdash;weird). Plus, there's going to be a Wi-Fi music store! What's interesting to EU readers is that Francois said the third-gen Zune will debut in Europe at the same time. What's even more interesting to people who don't care about Europe are the mobile capabilities, a.k.a., the music store.&rdquo;</em><br /><br />I spotted this over on <a href="http://gizmodo.com/367597/zune-3-details-+-holiday-2009-with-wi+fi-music-store">Gizmodo</a> but I honestly would take this with a grain of salt. Or perhaps a whole saltshaker. If it&rsquo;s true then there&rsquo;s good and bad here. I think a wireless music store would be great. I&rsquo;ve had a lot of people ask me about that feature. But that release date is almost 2 years away. Apple is way ahead on that feature already. Given that the Zune suppose music subscription the utility of that feature would be phenomenal. Of course it&rsquo;s hard to tell since the article is a translation if the date referred to the 3G Zunes or the music store. Is any of it true? Well, I&rsquo;d say that there is probably some grains of truth in there but its impossible to verify them! </p>

I'm happy that they are finally acknowledging Windows Mobile. Though this wasn't unexpected as I think most thought Microsoft would expand Zune onto the existing Windows Mobile platform. Its was more of a question of when. The Windows Mobile Team Blog had a post a month ago requesting feedback on what scenarios people would like to see between Windows Mobile and Zune.

Kacey, no it actually runs its own OS behind the scenes.
