Hard drive players: Zune 30 GB tops Amazon's bestseller list (*corrected*)
« on: October 04, 2007, 08:56:43 AM »

From our Zune blog:

An interesting phenomenon is taking place... as a result of the Zune team's announcement this week, sales of the Zune 30GB player are rising sharply, according to Amazon's list of best-selling hard drive players.

The white Zune is currently the #1 hard drive player on Amazon, the black Zune 30 is #3, and brown Zune 30 is #5. I don't recall Zune ever dominating that list to that degree.

Evidently the lowered prices combined with the prospect of November's firmware upgrade, are spurring sales.

Welcome to the Social, new people.

*edit: As several members have pointed out, Amazon's list is incorrect and does not reflect the newer Apple hard drive models. - Ed.

This is something I expected! I predicted this a week ago and my friends laughed at me. They are not laughing now (and I'm $20 richer!)

But, I didn't expect this to happen so soon after the announcement! That is amazing!

Once ppl see the the new MP with the music videos and the new codecs, and with the tv shows using vista, are in action , that is going to drive both zune to more sales, in nov. I know when this new firmware is out, it like a brand new mp3 player to me Smiley

Amazon's hard drive players Best-sellers list:

Oh that list. I was looking at a different one... Hey, at least I asked.

That said, I think its great that all 3 first gen Zunes are in the top 5 on amazon. I really dare those fanboys to keep trolling "whats a Zune?" Of course, I can foresee their response.

"That's just amazon" or "that's a last-gen product" or "all hail apple!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

It's kinda cool that there is a slow crack forming in the market domination, and they won't admit it until it's a gaping hole. And then, it would mean better products for us all.

Looking at the Zune and iPod next to each other on that Amazon page, I must say that the Zune looks so much better than the iPod with that bigger screen. With the Zune getting thinner in November, I think there will be no comparison to the Zune and the iPod Classic.

Now, I hope the Zune team is wroking on something to blow the iPod Touch (or iPhone) out of the water.

The list posted doesn't have the latest iPods on there, and then there's this list..

http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/electronics/172630/

albeit, it's a mishmash of flash and HDD's.

In the HD-based category the 5G is currently on top spot, followed by black brown and white Zunes in that order.

why are people buying the old ones?

and shouldn't we be hoping that the flash players are the ones that start selling... to gain market share?

People are buying the old ones because:
 - the lowered price is attractive
 - the new firmware announced this week makes them an even better value

Agree....plus what else can give you a 3inch screen, radio fm, 30GB, music (video) store for that such low price ?
