New Zune Features Announced on May 1st?
We know that May 1st was the targeted date for the Pink Zune. For some unknown reason, the date was preceded by two weeks. We also learn from Jason Reindorp that a new marketing campaign was going to be launch in May and a watermelon red Zune should be expected a few weeks after the launch of the light-pink Zune.
What we didn't know is that Christina Calio, Director of Music Marketing for Zune, is going to make an important speech at the Digital NARM on May 1st at 5pm. Digital NARM is a two-day event to be held as part of InSights & Sounds.07 in Chicago on May 1st and 2nd. What is even more important is that her speech's title says: "Attendees will hear exciting updates on developments in Microsoft's new innovative device."
Exciting? What could be considered exciting? Podcast support? New content on the Zune Marketplace? Videos and Movies? Microsoft points rewards for sharing?
The event is dedicated to exploring the convergence of physical and digital entertainment retailing. Whatever will be announced at Digital Narm will be some how related to the content available on the Zune.
Let the Zune rumor machine go wild!
