Ballmer on Zune Phone, Moon Landing: Poppycock!

, we told you Microsoft was working on some sort of phonish, Zunish system or device that would play music and maybe let us watch a little CSS dancing around — they’re SO cute — on our phones. Well, Steve Ballmer just confirmed that it won’t be an actual device. Instead, it will be a piece of software. But as long as he’s throwing the possibilities out there, he also said they could put XBox technologies into the phone. Heck, he’s going to drop some widgets, some Aero interface elements, and Microsoft Bob into your next phone.

“It’s not a concept you’ll ever get from us. We’re in the Windows Mobile business. We can put Zune into Windows Mobile, we can put Xbox into Windows Mobile. We can pour everything in.

Fair enough, Steve. Just don’t get any on ya!
