It's interesting to see that the Zune is holding onto the #2 spot for hard drive-based players, denying that nay-sayers the ability to say that the numbers from the first month were a fluke. 9.9% is a good number for a brand new product, but it also underscores the fact that the Zune needs to get a flash version out into the market because the real big numbers come with the sale of the Nano, Shuffle, all of Sandisk's products, and others. I wonder, how well can the Zune team execute in parallel? With some markets, such as Canada and the UK, expected to get the Zune later this year, is the Zune team focused on that or will we see the US market get its first flash-based player before other places in the world get their first Zune at all?
