Is Microsoft's ZuneX Really Their Portable Xbox Phone?
Posted by XanTium | May 19 12:49 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From gizmodo.com:


These leaked photos of the ZuneX (ZX-1000) may or may not be Microsoft's handheld device that combines the Zune with the Xbox. But we do have specs. And it may be a phone.

ZuneX ZuneX
Mimbee.tv's got a grainy shot from a conference that may or may not be real, a shot of a guy holding a ZuneX in his hand that looks more photoshopped than not, and a list of specs:
4-inch display at 640x363 resolution
Custom Intel LV Atom DualCore 733MHz processor
Custom Nvidia BLowFish chipset
128MB RAM
40 hour music, 14 hours of video, 9 hours of gaming and 6 hours of gaming with the wireless on
4 analog buttons, 2 shoulder buttons, an analog stick attachment
32GB flash storage
Support for Bluetooth headphones
SIM Card tray (it's a phone! Maybe!)
Xbox Live Arcade Games
ZuneX Originals
OnLive Ready game streaming (now we're just getting a little ridiculous)
WMV, H.264, MPEG-4 and DivX support

What I really need is a flip out spoon, fork, and toothebrush.

But actually that sounds kinda sorta neat even tho I'll not be getting one... it should be able to text.

1) ugly (what is this 1993 and game gear 2?)
2) that's the same dpad sony has used on controllers for years
3) i like the idea but the device in the pictures should never see the light of day

not gonna be released imo - there is probably a prototype like this, but thats about all.

also, is it me or do the specs look really sh*t?

1) horrible resolution - even for a portable imo
2) whats with the clock speed? 733mhz, yuk - make it 1GHz
3) this is the stupidest thing - Microsoft pairing up with nVidea again? i seriously doubt that.
4) 128mb of RAM - no way, thats just disgusting - surely it must cost more to make such a low capacity - atleast have 512mb imo.
5) 32GB Flash storage - can't really complain about that - hopefully there will be expandable memory - microSD please.
6) Bluetooth - Great plus
Sim Card slot - Doubtfull, but excellent if true.

what kills it is the OnLive support - now that just totally debunks the rumor.

Since when Microsoft do an announcement with only 10 people, if you look at the left of the picture, it 'says "*lang *city & *center", little google search, bingo! xD

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center New York City

Nice place to do a MS presentation!

This is more fake and less believable than the kid who bought two hookers with his dad's credit card, just to play xbox with him.. not even a retarded kid would pass up the full hooker potential laugh.gif

Sony's flagship D-pad? Microsoft wouldn't even remotely think that would slide.

The PSP only has a resolution of 480x272. The rest I could see, even the 733MHz and 128M RAM, but once we get to the OnLive support, it sounds fake to me as well (even the Gizmodo article thinks that). On Live is advertising itself as a replacement for expensive hardware and consoles (ain't gonna happen). I don't think Microsoft is going to pair with a competitor.

I would have gotten it to replace my current phone. The only problem I see is that it doesn't have anything for games, no card or CD slot. I'm not downloading all my games.
