Microsoft has discontinued the Zune Classic and the Zune Flash, these Zune were directly set to compete with the iPod Classic and the iPod Nano.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/171348/microsoft_to_drop_all_zunes_except_for_hd_model.html

The will be instead focusing on the Zune HD which is directly competing with the iPod Touch.

Interesting stategy, I think this just shows that Microsoft has conceded it can't compete with the Classic and the Nano and will instead focus completely on trying to beat the Touch. I personally dont think it will work, but we will see.

Thoughts?

I guess the Zune Classic and Flash weren't Crackalackin' enough anymore! :D

(To get the joke, Google for "Craig Ferguson Zune".)

I wouldn't put zzzzzune and iPod in the same sentence, especially with the word "compete".
