Unconfirmed: Zune Phone Coming.

Zune Phone seems to not be too far away. With the Apple iPhone planning on being released in mid-2007 this year, we’ve been hearing all sorts of news on when Zune Phone will be released or if it ever will be released. But according to CrunchGear, it seems as if the Microsoft team is once again in their round table, working their minds to capture and seriously compete against Steve Job and Apple’s iPhone.

But considering how only idea clouds are being formed as of, there aren’t really specific launch dates (although we’ve heard a ready to be sold at 2007 Holidays news) or even specifications on the Zune Phone.

Despite this fact, a Zune Phone looks as if it’ll be more of a smartphone that’ll co-work with the Zune AND the Zune Marketplace. Windows Mobile running on the Zune Phone seems like an unlikely decision by Microsoft. Probably an interface similar to the current Zune’s UI? After all, people are quite fond of the revolution that Zune has brought in terms of MP3 interface.

More updates on the Zune Phone as they’re released. But with the iPod coming in June and hopefully the Zune Phone coming in late 2007, I wonder how many will bite the Apple rather than wait for the Zune Phone…
