Well, we’ve all got to find some way to keep ourselves busy over Christmas. One man spent December 23 to January 2 making this – a concept Zune phone design.
Unsurprisingly, it’s a total iPhone rip-off – full-face touch screen, curvaceous black design – it’s probably even got a shiny metal concept back and a little MS logo where the Apple is supposed to be.
The only interesting thing about this discovery is what Zune Scene has to say on the possible arrival of a zPhone – “We know little about the Zune 3 except that meetings have already begun involving the design team.”
So, somewhere inside Microsoft, is Zune head man J Allard wondering just how close he can get to ripping off iPhone without actually getting sued right at this very moment? Or would a Zune Phone encroach a little too much on Microsoft’s plans for Windows Mobile handset domination?
Or have we already got enough mobiles and MP3 players coming out of our bottoms and literally couldn’t give a toss about getting another variation on the theme?
