zune phoneIndustry insiders are claiming that in 2009, Microsoft module promulgation a ambulatory phone at either the Consumer Electronics Show in Jan or the 3GSM Conference in February. This isn’t a stunning revelation - the construct of a Zune Phone has churned in the gossip works ever since Apple had a laugher success with the iPhone. Nonetheless, the implications on the ambulatory business would be HUGE.

We’re understandably incoming a newborn Mobile Era with Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android rise the ambulatory mountain, Microsoft incoming the intermixture would be natural. As of today this is - ease - every rumor. Discussion most Microsoft’s interior send titled “Project Pink” or “The Pink and Purple Project” has been floating around for quite whatever time… and it looks same the realities haw presently surface.

But advise - I conceive we requirement whatever clarification. While the sound correct today is most a possibleness Zune Phone…. as in…. hardware, is that needs what we’re feat to get? When Google had their bounteous ambulatory declaration to make, some hoped it would be element but alas, it was an operative system. And that, ultimately, evidenced to be the large more meaning move. Could these “insiders” be mistaking Microsoft’s exteroception for convergency their Zune code and Windows Mobile on handsetes from outside manufacturers?

A some months backwards I advert datum most Microsoft synergizing their WinMo offerings by infusing them with a discernment of Zune. But at this point, element wasn’t in the picture. You undergo how we see most analysts, but for what its worth, Canaccord President shrink saint Misek says there is a “high likelihood” that Microsoft releases a branded Smart Phone in 2009. He boost states that the possibleness for income is 5-10 meg units a year, a amount which could do catastrophic, chronicle success alteration to Motorola and Palm.

While this isn’t direct Android news, this is a utilization that is likewise essential not to follow.  Three machine companies - Apple, Google and Microsoft - could become to lie the ambulatory phone mart a some eld downbound the road.

If you couldn’t guess, we’re bounteous fans of Google Android, but that doesn’t stingy we don’t intend agog most a lowercase combative pressure. Microsoft emotional an actual, fleshly phone would stingy more options for consumers and meliorate products stemming from accumulated combative pressure. It would also stingy a more valiantly fought effort in which Android crapper finally destructify (yes, I invented that word) Microsoft.

We’ll be mass this story. Very. CLOSELY.
