MS: 1M Zunes sold by June

Microsoft expects to sell one million of its Zune players by June, says the Associated Press. The statement was made by entertainment group VP Bryan Lee, who also claims that Microsoft will one day "be the leader" in high-end digital audio players. The company has considerable work to do: one million units is high for the average consumer electronics product, but Apple is boasting sales of 39 million iPods within the year ending September 30th. It was also announced recently that sales of the Zune fell from second to fifth place in the product's second week. Microsoft itself admits that the current Zune is merely a stepping-stone in its long-term plans.
