Zune Hardware is Dead (for real this time) RIPOctober 4, 2011 No Comments
We published an article yesterday on how Microsoft was through with Zune hardware when on their newly updated site, they failed to place the Zune HD on their list of compatible devices. Soon after they edited the homepage on Zune.net and claimed it was in error. However now on their support pages they have updated it to say something completely the opposite.
Zune Player Support and Services:
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. To get the most out of your Zune player or for additional support, see the following sites:
- For information about your player, see Zune Players.
- If you need a repair or want to register your Zune player, see the Zune Online Service Center.
- If you recently placed an order for a Zune player through the Zune Originals website, your order will still be fulfilled. To check the status of your order, please contact us.
- If you have any other questions, ask Microsoft Answers.
So long Zune hardware, I wish things could be different but maybe one day you will rise again.
