Updated: Microsoft hints at June for new Zune [Fake]

Microsoft is heating up the Zune advertising and is hinting at June for a "new product launch".

We've had the hints that a new Zune, namely the Zune HD, could be surfacing this year but an interesting twitter update from the Microsoft Office 2010 team points towards June being the month of the Zune.

The twitter post simply states "June 2009 will be an important month for Zune lovers" but was followed up after a flutter of replies from Twitter users with another tweet saying "New product launch, that's all I'm allowed to say. Hold off from buying an iPhone/Pre. :)".

Microsoft could be hinting at Zune services for Windows Mobile which have long been rumored as codename "Pink" combined with a rumored "Zune Phone". The software giant could also be hinting at new hardware. Either way we would bet this is to do with E3 which begins in early June. It's a week before Apple's WWDC and if Microsoft and Verizon have been planning a Zune Phone then a week before the new iPhone is a good time to announce it.

Update: Microsoft have confirmed the Twitter account was added to the Office 2010 page by mistake and is a fake account.
