Zune on Windows Mobile, not until 7

image According to some information supplied to our friends over at wmpoweruser, Windows Mobile 6.5 will not in fact be getting the Zune service that we were all secretly hoping for. But the better news is that  Zune is very much coming to Windows Mobile 7, and a pretty full implementation of it too.

Unfortunately for the over the air download part of the service Microsoft intends to have the operators very much involved, meaning when music tracks are downloaded via 3G we may end up paying twice as much as if the track was downloaded over WIFI. The Operators will also be involved in billing, with the ability of tracks to be charged directly to your phone bill rather than your credit card.

So there you go, Windows Mobile 6.5 is a stepping stone to the big changes and nothing more, for Win Mo to get back in the game, 7 is the lucky number.
