That’s impressive since the 939,000 units were sold for the fiscal year ending September 30. iPod sales have taken off like crazy since then.

LoL, 29% of market share but 54% of market revenue.  That number screams over priceing!  Now think how many more they would sell if they lowered the price.  Oh well Apple will never learn.
