    Microsoft has always been very elusive and secretive about its plans for making a cell phone. After all, it already has its Windows Mobile OS, but could the software company be looking to make a device to further rock the smartphone world? Maybe.

    The Microsoft team behind Office 2010 has posted a couple of very interesting updates on its Twitter feed. Office 2010 will include Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks integrated right into Word. It will also be available for Mac users as well. But that’s not what’s caught our eyes.

    The Office Twitter team tweeted, “June 2009 will be an important month for Zune lovers.”

    A follow-up tweet then read, “New product launch, that's all I'm allowed to say. Hold off from buying an iPhone/Pre.

    We’ve heard rumors about a new Zune in the works – a very sexy one with a gigantic screen. What’s interesting is that a source inside Microsoft is telling the public not to buy an iPhone (not just an iPod Touch) and a Pre, basically signalling to consumers who are in the market for a new cell phone to wait for a new Zune product.

    June looks to be a huge month for new smartphones with the launch of the Palm Pre, the potential reveal of a new iPhone, and now a Zune phone.

    Not only that, the Zune Phone will most likely also be unlocked to multiple carriers!

    UPDATE: Microsoft’s sent out word that the Twitter account @officethemovie is not operated by the company (despite mysteriously being linked at the Office 2010 promo site earlier, according to Engadget). Interestingly, Microsoft is denying ownership and involvement of the Twitter account, but not any of the Zune-related rumors. Could that mean that there was some truth to it after all?

    UPDATE2: Yup, total fake tweet confirmed. But we still think that there's going to be a Zune phone eventually.
