Microsoft says Zune still on track

Though the devices still seem hard to spot in the wild, Microsoft says its market share is holding steady and reiterates its plans to sell 1 million of the devices by June.

Microsoft says Zune sales still pretty rosy. Microsoft

I still don't , but Microsoft says that it is still on track to sell 1 million of its Zune portable music players by June. That's this month, so I wonder just how many of the devices are leaving Microsoft now and headed to retail stores.

The software maker noted on Thursday that it is still garnering roughly 10 percent of the U.S. retail market for hard drive-based music players and, according to NPD, has grabbed a 11.3 percent share for May.
