Microsoft: Zune sales to top 1 million by June
Although the Zune has fallen some in the sales ranks, Microsoft says it expects to sell more than 1 million of the music players by the end of June.
The software maker said Wednesday it was pleased with response to the device, which debuted at No. 2 in research firm NPD’s weekly sales ranks, but fell to No. 5 last week.
“We’re forecasting just over 1 million units for the fiscal year,” said Jason Reindorp, marketing director for Zune at Microsoft. “We feel pretty good about that number.”
