Ballmer confirms Zune in next version of Windows Mobile

By now it's hardly a secret that we're expecting some sort of Zune integration in Windows Mobile 7. Microsoft has been fairly coy about it, though nobody's really been buying that.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer (that's him on the right) dropped word today during The Engadget Show that Zune will be coming to the next version of Windows Mobile.

For Zune he says Windows Mobile is going to get integration in the next release -- which is a comforting thought, if perhaps a bit late.

So there you have it. Good riddance, Windows Media Player.

  • Late? Yes. But what else do they have to give us...6.5.2?
  • gosh - it''s gotta suck right now for the folks responsible for zune device sales, huh? note: even ipod sales are lowering as iphone sales rise.
  • Why do you say that? The people that bought an ipod over an iphone are people who don't want/need a phone/monthly bill... the same can be said for people who got/will get a zune or a zune phone...
  • Hopefully with XNA support :)
