Microsoft seen having iPod rival out by Christmas

Microsoft will be ready to challenge Apple in its space as early as this Christmas. According to this CNN/Reuters report (click link above) it is putting the final touches to a wireless digital music and video player. Long rumoured, Microsoft has been soliciting record company interest in the device, alongside a new application proposed as a challenger for iTunes, over the past few months.
The brains behind the project are Xbox visionary J. Allard and Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft’s entertainment and devices division. So don’t be too surprised if this also turns out to be a games playing handheld as well.
