Zune exec Tweets of 'new Zune hardware'

When? Where? How? What? Why?

Microsoft will announce some Zune hardware this year, according to a Zune executive’s Twitter post.

Seitz's Twitter page

Brian Seitz, Group Manager of Zune, Tweeted just hours ago the short-but-sweet message that “new Zune hardware [is coming] this year”.

Unfortunately, that’s all Seitz was willing to say, leaving everyone wondering exactly what he meant by “hardware”?

Could he have been referring to an upcoming Zune portable media player model? If so, let’s hope it’ll be available outside of North America.

Alternatively, Seitz could have been hinting at the creation of a Zune phone. Back in December Seitz himself spoiled all the fun by declaring that Microsoft wouldn’t, contrary to popular belief at the time, launch a Zune talker at the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES).

We’ll keep our ears to the ground for you, and our eyes on Seitz’s Twitter page. ®
