The Zune may soon be a device of the past as it continues to plummet in sales.  The almighty iPod and iPhone seems to keep consumers wanting more Apple and less Microsoft.  According to a report filed with the SEC, the revenue of the Zune for the 4th quarter was less than half of the previous year.  As a matter of fact the “Zune platform revenue decreased $100 million or 54% reflecting a decrease in device sales.”

Fortunately for Microsoft, the Entertainment and Devices Devision is still profitable thanks to the Xbox 360 and the PC platforms.  Revenue for the Xbox and the PC platform increased by 6% bringing them up to $2.2 billion.  Apple had about a 3% increase in iPod sales in the same period.
