Microsoft’s original goal was to sell one million Zunes by June 2007. It’s mid-May and they have already sold one million Zunes which shows they’re right on track with where they expected they’d be nine months after launch.
As their first entry into the portable media market, I’d say that the Zune has done fairly well. Especially considering that the iPod already had such a massive portion of the media market to begin with.Certainly, the Zune hasn’t turned into the “iPod Killer” that it was once dubbed, but it’s doing good. Not great, but good.
I am surprised however, that I have yet to see anyone using a Zune. I live in a college town and have seen iPod after iPod in the hands of college students but have yet to see anyone with a Zune. I guess when put into perspective, one million Zunes really isn’t THAT much in the grand scheme of things. I’ve of course seen them on the shelves at various stores, but that’s as close as I’ve gotten to seeing one in public.
So, have any of you seen a Zune making a public appearance?
