Though the tweet that caused the rumor storm has already been taken down, Microsoft’s Head of Consumer Marketing for Windows Phone, UK, Oded Ran, flat out said that Zune for Mac was coming, and coming soon.
It’s not surprising, really, since Microsoft recently relaunched their efforts in the mobile computing space with Windows Phone 7. While Apple computers make up a fraction of those powered by Microsoft’s own Windows operating system, they’re not insignificant. Especially so, if one considers the trend of technology enthusiasts who buy the brand and influence others.
As mentioned, Mr. Ran quickly removed the tweet fro his account, which is a sure sign that he spoke a little sooner than Microsoft was probably ready to admit. Still, for OS X users looking to buy into the new platform – and there are, no doubt, at least a few – this can only be considered good news.
