Microsoft Launches Missile, Apple Shoots it Down

Rumors have flown today about the next Windows Mobile 7 Zune Phone. Mari Jo Foley at ZDNet has published what she thinks (or might know) it the real Zune Phone’s (codenamed Pink?) tech specs.

The phone would include a ARM v6+ processor, Open GL ES 2.0 graphics chip (possibly the TI3430 or NVIDIA Tegra), 3.5″ 800 x 480 or 854 x 480 pixel touch screen, 3MP camera, GPS, light sensor, 3-axis compass, accelerometer, USB, bluetooth, and WiFi support.

It seems that along with this news, a Chinese Forum Poster has described the next iPhone’s “minor” hardware update including a 600MHz CPU speed (up from 400MHz), 256MB of RAM (up from 128MB), a digital compass and FM tuner, 3.2MP camera with auto focus, and a shiny new 32GB version.

Even though these rumors ARE merely rumors, each company did play an important business role today.

While Microsoft took a shot at the cost of iTunes VS. a subscription based plan (in which the song actually isn’t yours) in the video below, Apple released a update to Leopard (10.5.7), all Leopard Servers, Tiger users, security patches, and Safari patches to Leopard, Tiger, and Windows users. The 10.5.7 Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Leopard and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac.
