Amazon.com Bestsellers: The most popular items in Electronics. Updated hourly.

I am not making this up: the 30 GB brown Zune is the best-selling device in Amazon.com's electronics category at the moment.  Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it's 55% off ($89.99), since Microsoft is discontinuing the brown version (so I wouldn't bet on Amazon's "In stock on December 19, 2007" assertion)...

The next Zunes in the list:

#16 black 30 GB at 30% off SRP ($139.99)

#37: black 80 GB (2nd generation) -- controversially sold out ($249.99)

The reviews on the 2nd generation Zunes are very strong, but of course the iPod Touch (on Amazon's list at the moment, the 16 GB Touch is #9 [$378.99], and the 8 GB is #11 [$283.99]) makes the latest Zunes seem previous-generation in comparison.  Then again, the 8 GB 2nd-gen Zune is listing for $189.99, so the Touch coolness comes at a significant price premium.

In any case, it looks like the 2nd-generation Zunes have already become the leading non-iPod portable music players, and I suspect the 3.0 versions will be even more successful...
