Zune Marketplace icon makes appearance on Windows Mobile 6.5 screenshot
Well, it may not be a Zune phone, however these latest screenshots are something that seem to be exciting. They are from the upcoming release of Windows Mobile 6.5 and clearly show off an icon for the Marketplace.
Keep in mind, that while these screenshots do appear to be authentic, they are reported to have come from the leaked HTC Touch HD ROM, they have not been officially released, nor have they been confirmed by Microsoft. They do however fit in with the previous rumors and speculation on this subject. Hopefully we will get some more news during Mobile World Congress which is coming up very soon.
Personally, I have sworn off Windows Mobile based phones a long time ago, and despite being a big Zune fan I am not all that interested in the rumored Zune phone, however bringing the Zune Marketplace to my phone would at least make me re-consider a Windows Mobile phone in the future.
Finally, and perhaps most important, lets hope that this "Marketplace" icon is actually a real app and not just a link to the existing Marketplace.
