Zune software coming to Windows Mobile

image We have been talking about this for a long time and this is the first confirmation that we have heard from Microsoft that they intend to incorporate the Zune music playing capabilities into Windows Mobile devices. Steve Balmer speaking in an interview with CIO editor Martin Veitch said "At the end of the day, one of the big trends is that all content is going digital. And if we don’t have the software and services that are useful, helpful and valuable for the consumption of music and video, we are sort of not really a player. Now, we built the Zune hardware with the Zune software – and what you’ll see more and more over time is that the Zune software will also be ported to and be more important not just with the hardware but on the PC, on Windows Mobile devices, etc." Don’t expect this anytime soon though, my guess would be Windows Mobile 7 at the earliest.
