What will the Zunephone be like?

What would happen if M$ came out with a Zunephone to compete against the iPhone?

They will announce one, but you will only be able to talk for 1 minute at a time, due to copyright issues.

I dunno they could release something like a Samsung Blackjack. As windows mobile devices go that's a pretty cool thing.

I don't like CE/Pocket PC/etc though, I tried it and didn't get along with it. OK it works (like XP works) but it's just the way it goes about stuff...
