More for the Zune phone rumor file

The good people over at jkontherun have “totally unconfirmed” news about Microsoft’s plans for a Zune Phone. Yep, that’s right, even though the Zune hasn’t made much of a splash, Microsoft seems to think that making it a phone will help it compete against the hugely popular iPhone…

jkontherun’s anonymous source said that there was a meeting in Redmond this week about the Zune phone and that it will be based on a specialized variant of Windows Mobile 7, with functionality centered around Windows Live Services and a touch-screen based design.

We’re keeping the Zune phone still at the rumored stage, but it seems those rumors just keep popping up. Keep your ears open.
