Microsoft Mulling Zune-Windows Mobile Integration

Is Microsoft considering some sort of integration between its Zune digital music player and its Windows Mobile platform? InfoWorld.com speculates that this might indeed be the case. The Web site reports on a series of postings on the Windows Mobile blog over the weekend that include a Microsoft developer asking bloggers for ways that the Zune and Windows Mobile devices might have a closer relationship.

According to the article, the developer received suggestions from more than 50 users. “The most common idea is to essentially replace the Windows Media Player on Windows Mobile devices with Zune software,” InfoWorld says.

The news site was quick to point out that we shouldn’t get our hopes up for a converged device or a Zune phone because neither is apparently on Microsoft’s drawing board despite the fact that it’s buying Danger, the company that developed the T-Mobile Sidekick device.
