Zune phone with Tegra to unveil at MWC?

Microsoft logoMicrosoft is allegedly set to unveil the "Zune Phone" later this month at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, according to the Spanish blog MuyComputer. The company has reportedly teamed with Nvidia to develop and launch the device, which is based on the Tegra platform. The handset will pair Windows Mobile 7 with Zune software for media management.

Detailed specs are unclear, although the phone is claimed to offer a 480x272 pixel display and HDMI output. If true, the display resolution would match Microsoft's Zune HD media player which is also based on Tegra components. Weight is listed as 70g, which is 4g lighter than the Zune HD and almost half the weight of an iPhone.

A recent analyst report suggested a "Zune-like phone" is on its way, with a launch set for MWC or the CTIA spring event in March. Microsoft's direct involvement in launching a device, however, would appear to run counter to the company's previous strategy of unbiased marketing with its various hardware partners.

The Zune Phone reports remain unconfirmed, although MuyComputer claims the launch is "100% confirmed."
