We know a Zune phone is in the works, that much is abundantly clear, but what passed through the FCC was a pre-approval application document that ran down a list of questions the FCC had for a CE &quot;coalition&quot; consisting of Microsoft, Dell, Google, HP, Intel, Philips, who are apparently in on some device together.&quot;</em></p><p><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2007/engadget-ms-fcc-021307.jpg" /></p><p>Engadget warns not to believe the <a href="http://crunchgear.com/2007/02/09/zne-phone-confirmed-launch-scenario-4g-wimax-action-rumors-off-the-wtf-o-meter/">rumors</a> surrounding Microsoft's recent FCC filing. According to Engadget, while it is clear this filing is for some sort of wireless device, the numbers just don't add up to this filing being related to the Zune or a precursor to the rumored Zune phone. What do you think? Does this filing herald the coming of a Zune VoIP phone device?</p>

This whole Zune phone thing is completely ridiculous - it got blown way out of proportion. It seems like every blog is racing to out-do each other when it comes to crazy-ass speculation...:rolleyes:
