Microsoft Hardware meets these needs with its expanded digital communications line, which consists of the Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 (the company’s first webcam designed exclusively for laptop use), the LifeCam VX-1000, and two new digital headsets - LifeChat ZX-6000 and LifeChat LX-3000 - all optimized for use with Windows Live Messenger, the world’s largest instant messaging network, providing a simple and natural communications experience.
According to an article at TWICE we soon may expect official information about the rumored answer of Microsoft on the ongoing success of the Apple iPod strategy. Ami Gilroy, editor at TWICE, claims "Microsoft is in the process of unveiling its line of Microsoft Zune portable digital audio players" to its retailers. The Microsoft Zune MP3 player supposes to incorporate a 30GB hard drive and a LCD monitor larger than its Apple rival. Additionally it is also expected that the Microsoft Zune audio player is capable of transferring its data via Wi-Fi connection. Pricing of the Zune media player would be $299 and available in three colors. Although the information is at this moment not official, it is interesting.
