Default Zune sales down 54%?

This is surprising. Why is Zune losing market share? Perhaps Zune needs to make players with a card slot and have lower pricing to adequately compete against Sandisk? In the US, one can buy an 8 gig Sandisk Fuze plus an 8 gig SDHC memory card for around $100. It also seems like Zune has nothing to compete against the Sandisk Sansa Clip. Perhaps the problem might be that the other player makers(even including Sandisk) are making players too similar to ipods? How about making them as different as possible from ipods to gain market from Apple? How about players that navigate by folders, use a AA or AAA battery, have a card slot, have both AM and FM radio, have variable speed playback from half to double normal speed with automatic pitch correction(similar to what Windows Media Player offers. This is important for podcasts, audiobooks and lectures.)
