The onward, slow march of the Zune

Great news on the Zune sales front - assuming, of course, that you work for Apple or Sandisk: the two millionth Zune has just been sold, almost a year to the day after the first million was passed. Not terrible sales, but not picking up much speed, either.

Of course, two million units isn't bad, and Microsoft has now got four per cent of the portable music player market, cementing its third-in-the-sector place. The lack of an appearance on the European market suggests - for the moment at least - Microsoft's priorities lay elsewhere.
