I don’t know if I can write this with a straight face, but I will try.
Let’s look for a second and see how many iPods are selling each week? Approximately 1 million per WEEK.
So the Zune launched in late November. June, that is 7 months after the launch to get 1 million units sold.
Well at least they have goals.
Let’s hear some of what said:
Microsoft Corp. said Wednesday that it expects to sell 1 million of its new Zune music players by the end of next June.
And this one made me laugh so hard I started to cry:
Lee said Wednesday that Microsoft expects to eventually “be the leader” in the category, especially once Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft rolls out more models of Zunes and starts selling them internationally.
Okay in all seriousness, I’ve been quite critical of the Zune. In order to be somewhat balanced, here are links where you can easily purchase a Zune from Amazon with free shipping and no sales tax for only $244.99:
