Is Microsoft’s Zune on the way out?

With all the talk about Windows Phone 7 recently, many people are starting to wonder why Zune hasn't been mentioned at all. It seems logical that Zune software would be a part of a Windows phone, since Joe Belfiore, the Corporate Vice President of the Windows Phone Program Management said in 2010's keynote at Mobile World Congress “Every Windows Phone will be a Zune”.

So Paramount has decided to release some movies, each one of them individually, as apps on Windows Phone 7. How will this work? Each movie (starting, strangely enough, with the Jack Black movie "School of Rock") will release by itself as an "enhanced" movie app, each of these apps containing the full movie plus bonus features and "unique experiences not available on other platforms." Other movies coming up soon are Zoolander, Waiting for Superman, and GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
