For past many days, it was reported that Microsoft was going to be "killing" off the Zune branding. This information detailed out that Microsoft was going to blend the Zune branding into other services and eventually kill off Zune.
The Zune team has come back to say that this is not true. They state that they are not killing the service in anyway and said on the official Zune Facebook page:
Zune Nation, let us give it to you straight: We're not "killing" any of the Zune services/features in any way. Microsoft remains committed to providing a great music and video experience from Zune on platforms such as Xbox LIVE, Windows-based PCs, Zune devices and Windows Phone 7, as well as integration with Bing and MSN.
Thanks for be...
To the Zune fans out there, this should come as good news as the service will live to see another day. Although the quote does not mention anything specific about hardware, the services will continue on for the foreseeable future.
