Default Zune Software Coming to Mac Soon

According to Neowin, Mac users might be able to use the Zune software soon according to Oded Ran, Microsoft UKs head of Windows Phone marketing in a tweet. He later removed his tweet.

EDIT: It is now confirmed by Microsoft that Zune will come to Mac this year.

If this is true I am so excited! I just hope it is the fully software and not use for WP7 phones.

Microsoft has just announced that Zune will come to Mac this year although they just say sync.

Default Zune software coming for Mac users.

In order to not discourage Mac users from buying Phone7 devices, MS announced it will have a version of the Zune app for the Mac.

I put this in the HD forum, as it also means you'll be able to sync your Zune HD with a Mac when it comes out.


I caught the news on Google tech news. Has to be true, eh?

Not necessarily. The tweet, which has been redacted, said Zune. Microsoft's official statement says only, "syncing software". I doubt it will be a full-fledged version of Zune, or even any Zune whatsoever. It will more likely be a pared-down sync client which may retain a similar style, but may not function as a media player on your Mac.

I'll be honest, I'm really interested as to what design they will use: native Mac, or Metro.
