With the launch of Microsoft Windows Phone 7 handsets imminent, the company is apparently getting ready to make associated software and tools available for all the major platforms available. Zune Software, which will now be the iTunes equivalent for Windows Phone 7 phones could soon be made available for the Mac platform. This comes from Oded Ran, a UK based Microsoft executive in charge of Windows Phone 7 marketing. In a tweet posted recently, Ran had written,
“DAILY #WP7 ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m glad to confirm that Mac users would be able to use Zune on their Macs to sync with #WP7. More details soon.”
Not surprisingly, the tweet got deleted soon after though it had gotten into the hands of several of his Twitter followers by then. But considering that Ran was actually “glad to confirm” this news indicates that an official announcement in this regard is not too long away.
