By June the Tunes Will Grace One Million Zunes

Microsoft’s Zune is not flying off the shelves–it was the fifth-best-selling MP3 player during Thanksgiving week–but Microsoft expects to sell one million of the little music-beaming critters in the first half of 2007. Is Steve Jobs losing sleep over Zune’s competition with iPod? 199,000 Google hits for the words suggest the answer is “no.”

  1. It is important for everyone to remember that the ipod and Zune are not really on equal playing grounds. The current Ipod is in its 5th generation while the Zune is the first of its kind. I don’t believe that Microsoft ever even considered taking over ipod as a top seller with its current Zune. I think the goal of the Zune is just to penetrate the market of Mp3 player devices with the long run goal of eventually rivaling the IPOD with their future generations of Zune devices.

  2. I agree with the above comment. Apple Ipods have established itself as the dominant player (excuse the pun!) in the Mp3 industry but that did not happen overnight.

    In a recent article regarding Zune’s sales:

    Microsoft seems to be very optimistic about their new product. But interestingly enough, a spokesperson for Apple did not seem fazed by Microsoft’s Mp3 player. “This is reiterated by our retailer partners who report that Zune is doing more than nibbling at our competitors’ share.”

    NIBBLING!

  3. Thank you for every other informative web site. Where
    else could I get that kind of info written in such an ideal manner?

    I have a venture that I am simply now operating on, and I’ve been on the look
    out for such info.
