With Mobile World Congress right around the corner, the Zune Phone rumors are gathering steam with more than one blog “confirming” the existence of these Project Pink phones. The latest confirmation was uncovered in the most recent Zune software update (188.8.131.52) which was rolled out as part of a scheduled maintenance today. Inside of the Zune.inf file, which is used to associate hardware devices with the Zune driver, is code that identifies a device described as a “Phone” with a vendor ID that is locked to Microsoft and three different product IDs that could correspond to three different phone models. Admittedly, this could be an indication of future Zune integration into Windows Mobile 7 but the fact that this emerged just prior to MWC with three specific hardware references is a bit compelling, no?
