According to an interview over at SFGate.com with Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices Division, Microsoft has surpassed its own goal of selling one million Zunes. Microsoft hoped to meet the target by the end of the 2007 fiscal year, which ends June 30.
Question: Can you talk a little bit about the Zune overall? Will we see next-generation Zunes coming out, particularly flash-based players?
Bach: We're still about nine months into having Zune in the marketplace. We're very pleased with the progress. We've sold a little over a million Zunes. In the category we're in, the hard-disk-based category, we've got about 10 percent market share. It's a good start. It's not an overwhelming start. I'm not going to pretend it's some gigantic move.
