Windows Phone 7 Hits 2 Million in Sales
On the eve of their earnings release, Microsoft has made another announcement regarding sales of Windows Phone 7 licenses. According to Microsoft, they sold over 2M licenses to OEMs. This represents a very good start to making Windows Phone a viable contender to iOS and Android. Unlike Android, Microsoft charges a fee for Windows Phone 7, so whether or not these licenses are sold to OEMs or to consumers there will be associated revenues. However, nobody knows exactly how many Windows Phones have been sold directly to consumers. Other good news released by Microsoft relates to a survey they conducted which indicated that 93% of individuals polled were satisfied with Windows Phone. Hopefully this good start provides them with some incentive to quickly update the system to compensate for bugs and much requested upgrades.
