Microsoft has jumped on the Twitter bandwagon - the latest buzz-generator of choice - with an account for Office 2010 but two somewhat cryptic tweets suggest a new Zune product launch is just around the corner.
They advise us to hold off on buying an iPhone 2009 or a Pre because June will be "an important month for Zune lovers." Seeing how they mention two quite popular phones, could this product be the ZunePhone? With Windows Mobile 6.5 launch imminent, a PocketPC with the new OS and a Zune software package doesn't seem too unlikely.
