More Zune details
The Zune will be able to play video files and songs in the MP3 format, along with music and video bought through a new service called Zune Marketplace. That service will also have a subscription plan, though Microsoft executives declined to give pricing details. The device will not play content bought from the iTunes Music Store of Apple.
And a Microsoft executive told reporters yesterday that a Zune phone was part of the company’s plan for the product line.
