Microsoft Confirms End of Zune
Microsoft announced in a note posted to an official support page that the Zune music player has been officially discontinued.
According to the note, first reported by This is My Next, the company will focus its "mobile music and video strategy" on the Windows Phone brand, while no longer producing Zune players. Existing Zune players will still be supported.
The news did not come entirely unexpected, as Microsoft had not introduced a new Zune in over two years.
