As Darin noted, the NPD number for NA is 1.3 million shipped.
As of 2/1, HDDVD standalones were up 52-48% according to NPD. Let's go with namechamp's 220k HDDVD players (both standalone and add-on/PC drives). Toshiba supposedly said 100k players.
This would mean BD had ~92k standalones comparitively as of the same time (2/1/07), roughly 8k less than Toshiba's 100k. According to Videogamecharts.com
showed there were 931,700 PS3's sold through it's 3rd month (Febuary). Nielson/HMM numbers were 100/92.53 SI at the time
To summarize with the Nielsen/Videoscan/HMM numbers:
Standalones (Toshiba and clones): 100,000
360 add-on: 92,000
PC drives: ~28,000
