Microsoft sold 5 times more phones this Christmas season - read the full textWith Microsoft being a major Qualcomm partner, last night Steve Ballmer dropped by Qualcomm's press conference and shared on stage that Windows Phones are enjoying increasing popularity. Of course, he didn't mention any specific numbers, but what he did say is in November 2012 they've sold 4...


Sort by:

Yes, Microsoft sold 5m or what-so-ever amount of units. But the fact that most of those device had been return back to the point of purchased and have it replace by a new Windows phone or a different phone manufacturer.

Microsoft lacks the capability to provide enjoyment to the user as they limit the features of the phone. Especially the application seen on the Store (Marketplace). Most, no, entire application seems to be odd and not working. If they intend or say that Microsoft provide over a thousand application. Well those application are never-the-less not worthfit. Hope Microsoft study and test first those application being provided by different application developer before releasing it on the Store.
