    Apple Inc. rocked the wireless business by combining the functions of a phone and an iPod. Now, more than two years later, Microsoft Corp. has its comeback: phone software that works a lot like its own Zune media player.

    The new software, which was due to be unveiled Monday at the Mobile World Congress, is a dramatic change from previous generations of Windows Mobile. But Microsoft is sticking to its model of making the software and selling it to phone manufacturers, rather than making its own phones.

    This is a little disappointing...as a Zune Pass user I was looking forward to a Zune Phone. And now I'll have to wait until later this year to see if the windows mobile phones with the Zune software are any good :(
