Default What's Your Take on Ballmer's Zune Phone Comments?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.usatoday.com/money/companies/management/2007-04-29-ballmer-ceo-forum-usat_N.htm' target='_blank'>http://www.usatoday.com/money/companies/management/2007-04-29-ballmer-ceo-forum-usat_N.htm</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>&quot;Q: When can we look forward to a Zune phone?</em></p><p><em>A: It's not a concept you'll ever get from us. We're in the Windows Mobile business. We wouldn't define our phone experience just by music. A phone is really a general purpose device. You want to make telephone calls, you want to get and receive messages, text, e-mail, whatever your preference is. The phone really is kind of a general purpose device that we need to have clean and easy to use. &quot;</em></p><p><em></em></p><p>Despite rampant <a target="_blank" href="http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/showthread.php?t=866&amp;highlight=phone">rumors</a>&nbsp;of an impending Zune phone, even dating prior to&nbsp;<a target="_blank" href="http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&amp;sid=a6kJgarwWLeg">before the initial Zune launch</a>, Steve Ballmer has recently nay-sayed that idea in a USA Today interview.&nbsp; Does Ballmer's comments mean we will never see a Zune Phone device?&nbsp; Maybe Microsoft has decided to play a wait-and-see game with the iPhone and judge its success before jumping on the band wagon.&nbsp; Or maybe his comments indicate Microsoft doesn't intend to produce a dedicated Zune Phone device, but rather they are looking at adding a software based Zune &quot;client&quot; to their existing or future Smartphone devices.&nbsp; What are your thoughts on Ballmer's Zune Phone comments?</p>
