    Microsoft working on a Digital Entertainment Handheld

    http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/19639/...ment-Handheld/

    All you gamers will like this, Xbox 360 and MP3 player (Zune) in one convienent portable handheld that supposedly does not require a phone network.
    I'm not a hard core gamer but deal with enough teenagers that I can see a real communication challenge here.

    It’s the Software, Stupid!

    Being a hardware geek, I would have preferred to learn everything about the handheld’s specs, but one source told me the most important aspect of this device lies is its software, services and the entertainment experience it offers.

    Even so, this source did confirm that the handheld is primarily “a portable game console and a media player.” The “xYz” is supposed to have a large WVGA touchscreen display and “hardware features not found on any handheld on the market.” Since I was informed about this, I’ve been trying to come up with specs that are not found on any mobile device currently on sale (more on that later).

    Once more, this source explained hardware is not the most important factor: “If it was up to the hardware, this device could launch sooner in time.”

    According to this source, Microsoft is waiting for other pieces of the puzzle to come together:

    At first I thought it looked pretty bad-ass, now I know why.

    Nothing like being 15 years behind the competition.

    Way to go Microsoft (pulls out my Zune and uses as a coaster).
