Tech news blog - 'Zune phone' patent application: It ain't ZenZui | CNET News.com

Earlier this week, Microsoft filed what appeared to be a patent application for a smart phone interface, causing many a blog to begin speculating that maybe it was for a "Zune phone" (for better or for worse)--something that's been talked about for some time now. The images in the application, showing a tiled graphical interface, definitely look somewhat iPhone-ish, and plenty of buzz arose that perhaps Microsoft was trying to develop an "iPhone killer."
Hmmm, I wonder why Apple has left some Leopard features a secret???

An attempt by Microsoft to create an "iPhone killer" will be short-lived. Just look at their iPod killer, the Zune.

Oh, wait. ;)

Media are so dumb. Everything is an xxxx-killer.

No kidding, this is business. Every company in the world wants to 'kill' the domninant company in their industry. This term is so over-used. Is anyone really so stupid that they need to read a story like that one to know that someone is working on trying to beat the iPhone?
