Microsoft “tweet” hints at new mobile phone?

Tue, May 12, 2009

News, Rumors

We’re not quite sure what to make of this, but it seems that there might be a Zune phone on the horizon.. maybe?

Microsoft’s Office 2010 Twitter account recently posted some cryptic tweets which all seem to point to a huge mobile phone release sometime in June.. kinda.  Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has explicitly stated that there won’t be a Zune Phone, so what gives?

The first tweet noted,

June 2009 will be an important month for Zune lovers.

Our first thought was, “There are Zune lovers out there?”

A few hours later, a second and more revealing tweet went up, reading

New product launch, that’s all I’m allowed to say.  Hold off from buying an iPhone/Pre. 🙂

Pardon us for being cynical, but holding off on purchasing an iPhone/Pre because Microsoft has something up its sleeve doesn’t exactly seem like a smart move no matter how you look at it.

For all we know, the Office 2010 tweeter is just toying with us all.  Guess we’ll all have to wait and see.
