    Microsoft Sold 1.5 Million Windows Phone On 1st 6 Weeks

    Windows Phone 7 PerformenceAt last silence has finally been broken regarding the sales figure for Microsoft’s latest push back into the mobile market. Microsoft has been suprisingly silent about Windows Phone sales, which has led to many speculating that Windows Phone was “dead on arrival”. To Microsoft’s credit, they have been very careful at setting realistic expectations for their “new” platform, especially in the wake of the iPhone and Android’s great success.

    Here is the statement from Microsoft regarding sales numbers:
    We are pleased that phone manufacturers sold over 1.5 million phones in the first six weeks, which helps build customer momentum and retail presence. Early customer survey data on the overall software experience is very positive and the willingness to recommend our phone is very high. That’s really good for us.
    Considering that two of the larger players in the US market (Sprint and Verizon) have yet to begin providing Windows Phones, this number isn’t too bad for a new platform and should see steady growth as the mobile OS is updated and more manufacturers and developers jump on board.
