Interest in the Microsoft Zune continues to be a growing topic as we progess through the early days of holiday sales. As we earlier reported, the Zune saw a lot of sales and curiosity seekers on Black Friday. Now, come Cyber Monday, we find interest continues to remain high as some sites report back on weekend traffic and others report on Zune trends in general.
First off, it seems as if the Zune did well on shopping sites like Yahoo Shopping and eBay. Yahoo reported the brown Zune was in the top ten products from the holiday weekend. eBay added that the Zune placed high among consumer electronics sales on its auction site, with close to 30 80GB players going "for an average selling price of $326.57."
Hitwise, a Internet metrics firm, meanwhile reported that for Cyber Monday specifically it saw the Microsoft Zune break into the top ten searches in the last week, coming in as the fith most searched product. Cyber Monday traffic in general increased 26 percent this year, with Amazon taking the honors as the most visited Web retail site.
