We recently announced that, going forward, Windows Phone will be the focus of our mobile music and video strategy, and that we will no longer be producing Zune players. So what does this mean for our current Zune users? Absolutely nothing. Your device will continue to work with Zune services just as it does today. And we will continue to honor the warranties of all devices for both current owners and those who buy our very last devices. Customer service has been, and will remain a top priority for us.
Software will continue to be updated, as well as apps, but no more hardware will be sold.
Despite being critically praised, the Zune was too little too late, especially being launched 5 years after the first iPod.
i guess I'm the only one that actually liked the Zune. the Zune was not defeated by the iPod it was defeated by the shear magnitude of all in one smartphones. even the iPod is having trouble competing with apples own line up of iPhone's.
