I guess low prices work. It’s working for HD-DVD and it looks like it’s working for Microsoft with the bargain priced Zune 30s now.
A Zune media player is the top-selling digital musical device on Amazon.com, outselling Apple. Inc.’s iPod for the No. 1 ranking.
On Monday morning, Microsoft Corp.’s heavily discounted, 30-gigabyte, $134 Zune digital media player was ranked the No. 1 bestseller in the Seattle online retailer’s (NASDAQ: AMZN) list of top-selling MP3 players in the “Electronics” category.
Apple’s four-gigabyte iPod nano was No. 2, followed by Apple’s 80-gigabyte iPod “classic” at No. 3.
Last week, the Redmond computer giant (NASDAQ: MSFT) introduced a new 80-gigabyte Zune player, but they’re hard to find. Amazon’s site on Monday said they’re “temporarily out of stock” and no future shipping date was listed. Microsoft’s own Zune site said the 80-gigabyte player can’t be ordered until “early December.”
