Microsoft today unveiled Windows Phone 8 at its Windows Summit, due out in the fall. But one tidbit not states (not that I heard, at least) is that current Windows Phone devices out now will not receive the Windows Phone 8 update, multiple publications have reported. It appears plenty of...

Windows Phone 8 will include NFC support, Microsoft announced today at the Windows Phone Summit, which will allow for endusers to pay for merchandise from their phone. But NFC on Windows Phone will also allow users to play peer to peer games between phones and Windows 8. Joe Belfiore today...

News of a super-secret Microsoft announcement has been circling the web after invitations were sent out early Thursday. People have been speculating what exactly it could be, most thinking it has something to do with Windows 8 tablets. And for the most part they were in the ballpark —...

Half a decade later:...

In the summer of 2006, I remember seeing something online about Microsoft’s new product — the Zune. It was in a time when I had never owned a portable media player before, when it seemed everyone and… ahem… his or her (mechanics!) mother had one (and I’m not just saying that because...

Dear Zuniteders, It is with great displeasure that I tell you I will be leaving Zunited and therefore stepping down as Editor In Chief. You probably don’t know me, but I’ve been with Zunited since 2008, where I annoyed everyone and begged to be a moderator. Then I became co-admin...

This is Zune. Never say die. After Zunited broke the news that Microsoft had added a support page stating explicitly “We recently announced… we will no longer be producing Zune players,” the company has pulled that webpage off the Zune website. It’s the same thing...

Microsoft: ‘We...

The official end of the Zune player is here, well more like two years ago when the company first introduced the Zune HD. We already posted this on our update of the article for the revamped Zune website, but this definitely deserves its own post. In a support page on the Zune website,...

Microsoft updated the official Zune website today to reflect the new Zune Music Pass, which was announced late last week. The Zune Music Pass will now be $10 a month and include music videos but has dropped the 10 MP3s to keep. The Pass will also find its way to Canada. But with the update to...

Zune HD team tells a...

Get ready for more “Zune is dead” headlines (never mind that Microsoft recently made changes to the Zune Pass — ahem, Zune Music Pass). More sensibly, the blogosphere might cry out that the Zune HD itself is dead. Microsoft sent out a mass email to all of the users in its Zune...

Windows Phone 7.5, also known as Mango, was released today… but there’s just one catch: the update won’t be available to all phones right away. In fact, only 10% of phones will receive the update by the end of the week; Microsoft hopes to cover 98% in a month’s time. But if...

Fresh off the news that Windows Phone 7.5 Mango was unleashed, Microsoft updated the official website — including an all-new web-version of its Windows Phone Marketplace. The web Marketplace has been expected for quite some time now. In fact, details from the Japanese language Windows Phone...

Today is reportedly Mango day. AT&T is supposed to get the Windows Phone 7.5 update first before any other carrier but Sprint may be getting it themselves. Sprint updated its support page for the HTC Arrive today, September 27, to include a new version of the operating system that...

You like music. You have an Xbox. You don’t have a ticket to iHeartRadio’s Music Festival, self-touted as the largest music event in radio history. Well, you’re in luck because Xbox LIVE will be streaming the event live in HD tonight (Sept 23) and tomorrow (Sept 24) for all...

It’s September 15th, 2011, and while it may be the second anniversary of the Zune HD’s release, it’s definitely not the day Windows Phone 7.5 Mango makes its debut as the rumor mill had been predicting quite fiercely for about a month now. Yesterday, a T-Mobile support page...

T-Mobile’s support page for its Windows Phone HTC HD7 is currently displaying that an update for the mobile phone is available. At this point, the only update that would be available is Windows Phone 7.5, codename Mango, which has been rumored for a September 15th release (tomorrow)....

AT&T announces ...

Labor Day has past, and according to radio show hosts everywhere, that means fall is now upon us — which is conveniently the timeline we were supposed to see the Windows Phone 7.5 devices debut. (All rumors point to a September 15 date for when Mango will be released on its own.) AT&T...
