The idea that Microsoft may release a Zune-phone, based on its portable music player, has once again resurfaced.

Although the likelihood of a Microsoft-branded handset has been repeatedly denied by the software giant, a post from one of the firm's Twitter accounts suggests otherwise.

@officethemovie, which generally exists to direct Twitter users to the promotional website for the next version of Microsoft Office, posted on Tuesday morning: "New product launch, that's all I'm allowed to say. Hold off from buying an iPhone/Pre. :)"

An earlier post on Monday said: "June 2009 will be an important month for Zune lovers."

Therefore, the rumors are back. At least, with a June timeframe, we will not have to wait too long to see if they are what we expect.
