Zune slips from 2nd to 5th in store sales

Good time to be a media player customer.... 

Zune captured 2.1 percent of the market in the week ended Nov. 25, Stephen Baker, an analyst at Port Washington, N.Y.-based NPD, said Monday. Baker said Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod remained the leader, with 39.4 percent that week, based on units sold.

Zune's market share declined as SanDisk Corp. boosted sales with a 50 percent price cut on its media players, taking a 39.3 percent share and knocking Microsoft from the No. 2 spot it occupied in its first week in the market.
