Default Why Didn't MS Use The Zune HD Design?

So I made a quick mock up of what looked good in my mind.

Turns out, I think the Zune HD's design is perfect for a phone layout.

Basically, I'd say it would look good by replacing the side "media button" with volume controls and adding "send" and "end" buttons to the bottom that look like they were meant to go there. Also, I could see the home button being the equivalent of that third button with the Windows icon.

I present to you . . . my concept!

Because MS doesn't make the phones. It's up to the hardware OEM to design it. I would love to see the Zune HD design, but with a 3.7"-4.0" screen. 3.3" is just too small.

Too small and too thin to shove decent parts inside it.
