1 Mill doesn't seem very ambitious, but does seem very doable in a 7 month tiime frame. I personally would love to see MS do it.

They better pickup the pace to acheive that rather low water mark. Units shipped or sold at retail?

Personally, I think Microsoft is lowballing the number so when it over sells it they can trumpet how great its doing.

Much better to say you've hit (or passed) your goal then to say you've came up short.

I really hope they sell AT LEAST 1 million units. Seems like a very small number though.
