10 per cent of the hard disk player market


Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices division, claims that they will have sold a million Zune's by June.

In an interview at he says their Zune players currently have roughly a 10 per cent market share as far as hard-disk based players go.

When asked about flash based Zune players he said: "As we look to the future, you're certainly going to see us continue to invest in that category. We don't enter things like that lightly." He also said that we can expect a pink Zune and a watermelon colored Zune soon.

Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices division has yet to make a profit, as they invest heavily in R&D. However, there is little doubt that Redmond will eventually make money with their Xboxs and Zunes and according to Bach they will soon be profitable.
