  • "It's a good start. It's not an overwhelming start. I'm not going to pretend it's some gigantic move," Bach said during the interview posted online on Monday. The Zune has a 10 percent market share in the hard-disk-based music player category, he added.

    The million unit figure bests Apple. It took the iPod 14 months to reach 600,000 shipments, but it was much earlier in the game than the Zune, when the market for digital music players wasn't so hot. Apple has likely sold around 25 million iPods over the same time it has taken the Zune to reach its goal, according to financial analysts.
