While everyone is debating the future of our beloved, ZuneHD Microsoft has seen fit to add more confusion onto the mix. There is now a new email client on the ZuneHd that supports Gmail, Windows Live and Exchange. The new email client looks just like the version on Windows Phone 7 except there is no support for address books. We are not sure what Microsoft is up to however we cannot wait to find out what this means for the future of the ZuneHD device.

Post image for Microsoft to Stop Making Zune devices

One of our favorite media player devices has always been the Zune HD. Some of the features we loved were the speed, screen and weight of the mp3 player too. Despite being a great device the Zune HD and the Original Zune never really set the world on fire, however its existence was not in vain. Anyone that looks at a Windows Phone 7 device knows it received some influence from the Zune HD. None of these features could save the Zune line. Bloomberg.com is reporting that Microsoft will not be releasing any new models of Zune.

There was a a Zune Software update that hit today. All Windows Phone 7 users are patiently waiting for the first update that will include Copy and Paste.

ZuneWmdu.dll and ZuneWmduResources.dll. are both now v4.7.1407. Microsoft’s support page in fact mentions these as need for the software backup:

There was rumor of a new feature in the Zune Software that would backup devices before they were updated. Looking at the associated KB article on Microsoft’s website, it appears these new files are the implementation of this new backup feature.

My friends and I participate in an annual camping trip. While some participants could definitely spend weeks experiencing the wilderness, I certainly cannot. Furthermore, listening to our podcast this week you should have heard me say, “I hate eating outside, bugs, wilderness, and being too far from modern technology”.

Microsoft has released the 64 Gig Zune HD early Hopefully this is a sign for other technologies we are waiting for this year. If you don’t have a Zune HD already then you are really missing out.
