One Million Zunes (Somehow) Sold

Talk about a shock over the weekend. Microsoft somehow managed to sell one million Zunes. Robbie Bach, Microsoft’s president of Entertainment and Devices, said that Microsoft had met its goal and that more Zune things will come later this year. I can understand maybe a smaller company getting excited over selling a million devices, but Apple in Q4 of last year alone sold 14 million iPods. Yeah, 14 million people bought iPods. Now those Zunes seem pretty dinky in comparison, eh?

Does Microsoft even have time to make a new Zune and launch it? Does it even have a remote chance of becoming successful? I highly doubt it at this point.
