Microsoft xYz Portable – Zune and XBox Combo in a Pocketable Device

xboxportableNow, I’m not sure if this is gonna be the fabled “Pink” Zune Phone is unclear, but Team Xbox claims to have sources inside Microsoft who are working on a new device that “sits somewhere in-between the Xbox and Zune platforms.”

Codenamed the “xYz” during discussions, this device will feature a WVGA touchscreen and a series of new hardware features not currently seen on the market.

I’ve no idea what those features are – it could be something like WiMax or some funky graphics processing chipsets. I just don’t know.

It is said, however, to implement Live Anywhere in a way that unites Microsoft’s digital storefronts – this will mean that music and movies will be able to be played both on the xYz and Xbox.

The xYz is set up to be a headache for Apple, Sony, Nintendo, as well as Google through implementation of Live Search—maps, news, and the like.

So – is this the  Zune Phone? Is the xYz a separate, or similar device?

Should I just been taking this as rumour and wait for more news?

I’m even more confused!
