Microsoft Zune Officially Discontinued

It was all a little confusing at first. Yesterday morning the Zune HD portable media player mysteriously vanished from the Zune website, but was brought back shortly thereafter. Microsoft’s Michael Yaeger said it was a “publishing mishap” on their part. However, the official Zune support page now says that it’s all true. The Zune is officially as dead as anything that has ever died.

Here’s what it says:

We recently announced that, going forward, Windows Phone will be the focus of our mobile music and video strategy, and that we will no longer be producing Zune players. So what does this mean for our current Zune users? Absolutely nothing. Your device will continue to work with Zune services just as it does today. And we will continue to honor the warranties of all devices for both current owners and those who buy our very last devices. Customer service has been, and will remain a top priority for us.”
