Microsoft: Don't buy an iPhone, Zune June is coming!

According to Microsoft, you should really hold off on buying an iPhone just yet, because huge Zune news is coming in June, and it will blow your mind! Just in case you didn't know, June is E3 time, so it seems like MS will have a hot reveal for the Zune in LA.

MS dropped the news via its Office 2010 Twitter account, where it's been hyping up Zune June. The term "Zune June" was my idea, but MS can use it if it wants to give me money. The Office account has been saying things like: "New product launch ... hold off from buying an iPhone/Pre," and "June 2009 will be an important month for Zune lovers." All five of them?

So, why would we want to hold off on buying those products? The most logical answer of course is that MS is adding iPhone-esque functionality to the Zune, continuing Microsoft's commitment to follow in Apple's footsteps with less success. Could E3 see the announcement of the ZunePhone? It would seem to be a likely bet.

Would you choose a ZunePhone over an iPhone? I somehow can't help feeling that if the Zune tried to copy the iPhone, it would fail on a number of issues, not least the fact that MS is a dictatorial emperor, and I can't see it embracing the freedom of Apps in the same way Apple did. Still, MS has its hands on some decent game licenses, so who knows what will happen? Mobile Gears of War, anyone?
