Rumors have been swirling for a few weeks that Microsoft is secretly working on an iPod killer. I have heard rumors that described everything from an iPod-like audio player to a cellphone with audio capabilities, a la the ROKR. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told Fortune Magazine that the software giant is interested in going after the iPod, and even hinted that an audio player/ cell phone is in the works.

“In five years are people really going to carry two devices? One device that is their communication device, one device that is music? There’s going to be a lot of opportunities to get back in that game. We want to be in that game. Expect to see announcements from us in that area in the next 12 months.”

    Until I can get a phone with 8 hours of iPod time AND 2 hours of talk time AND still have 24 hours of stand by time I’d rather carry two devices. I don’t want my iPod killing my phone or my phone killing my iPod.

    But what I’d rather have though is 16 hours of iPod time AND 4 hours of talk time AND 48 hours of standby.

    So far Microsoft doesn’t exactly have a sterling report card on power management in portable devices.
