Why am I doubting this will happen?
Knowing Microsoft, this has a 50/50. I would love to see a new revamped Zune....but I really doubt it.

I don't think anyone is reading the thread before posting. Or really even paying attention to the source linked.

As far as anyone can tell, this is not a confirmation. It's a rumor. IMO a really really shaky rumor. All it said was that this guy is responsible for future zune generations. This in no way means that he's announcing a future zune or even that there will be a future zune. Don't get excited yet.

I didn't see anything that pointed towards a new Zune, but here's to hoping.

okay this is what i have to say about this.... when all these rumors came out that the zune hardware is dead so many people complained about it. it even was a hot topic on tiwtter. im sure microsoft saw that and said its probably worth an investment to make a new device.so many people are zune fans. also all of us have complained about what the zune should have on it for 18 months now. i wanna know how in the world some people think that the next zune device can be a failure. if its anything like wp7 which it probably will be it will be an ipod competitor. therefore microsoft should not scrap the zune hardware or software because i believe that the whole "zune ecosystem" is finally coming all together

It might not be 100% guaranteed, but it lets us believe.

The story being on the zuneboards homepage in the way it is makes the site like stupid. Not a thing has been confirmed. For all we know he is in charge of WP7 and the current Zune. ZB Fail.

A little story here...

Charge told me to write the article, so I wrote the article.

But IMHO, Dave confirmed the Zune is not dead as you can read in our previous frontpage news, and Microsoft has stated that WP7 is just "this years Zune hardware".

In Dave I trust.

The headline and op should be changed a little to make it more clear that there is some disagreement here because everyone is coming in here thinking that there was an outright statement by M$ about a new zune or something.

I hate to be the guy who brings this up but it looks to me as the zune may soon be dead.

Microsoft to discontinue Zune player, focus on Zune software for smartphones - Phone Arena

I'm just as disapointed as the rest of you.

Since I am on my Zune and cannot copy and paste a link. I suggest you guys head over to zunited. a forum member got very odd email from the Zune team saying that the device is on its way out, after his dad tried getting an extended warranty.

Dear Scott,

Thank you for your interest in Zune. Unfortunately we are no longer able to provide you with an extended warranty for your Zune devices at this time, as Zune devices will no longer be manufactured or supported. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, however we are unable to offer you an extended warranty for your devices due to these circumstances.

We're absolutely committed to providing the best movies, music, and TV show experiences through Zune on Xbox, the PC, Windows Phone 7 and Zune devices. We'll share more information about the evolution of the Zune entertainment service and Zune hardware as future plans develop on Zune.net.

Sincerely,
Nathan G.
The Zune Originals Team
