Microsoft is Playing Twitter Games with June Plans and Possible Zune Phone



Microsoft is heating up for something and playing leak to Twitter games. We’ve heard denials about a Zune phone from Redmond, but this little Twitter exchange seems to hint otherwise. Of course just like in politics, when someone denies something many times it means just the opposite. Who really knows, but I’m guessing June is going to be a fascinating month. (See UPDATE below)

Interesting that Microsoft is also setting up a movie trailer heralding the release of the Technical Preview of Office 2010 as well. You can check out the trailer here.

UPDATE: Turns out it is someone else doing the playing around with Twitter. Apparently Microsoft has said there will be no Zune (HD, phone or otherwise) in June. And the Twitter account where all of this was a brewing is a fake one. The trailer is still a trailer though. The real Twitter account, if you want to follow it is @Office2010Movie.

    I am enjoying the fact that Palm is evidently causing more than just fans and the media to turn their heads with the Pre… Apple, AT&T, and now Microsoft are making note of and either slamming or at least putting it on par with the iPhone space… as a long time Palm user and fan, this just warms the cockles of my heart…LOL

    All good stuff. If it wasn’t for competition we’d all still be on our 486 PCs and posting these messages to the Gottabemobile BBS. ;-)

    Hey, but they’d probably have the 486 up to 500MHz by now!
