Microsoft sells 1.5 million Windows 7 Phone devices

The new OS has lent a new lease of life to the Windows Mobile platform. In the past year, Microsoft's Windows Mobile had lost market share to competitors such as Google's Android and Apple's iOS.

Microsoft has announced that it has sold more than 1.5 million units of its Windows Phone 7 devices within six weeks of their launch.
Achim Berg, vice president – business and marketing, Microsoft, said in a web posting, “While far from the 300,000 daily activations attributed to the iPhone and phones powered by Google’s Android operating system, the Windows Phone sales figures met the company’s realistic expectations. We all know that the competition is extreme in this industry, and we have to compete on multiple fronts.”
Berg added, “We are on a path to begin releasing the first of several updates in the next couple of months, and several more mobile operators around the world will introduce Windows Phone 7 on their network in 2011.”
Devices running on Windows Phone 7 software are currently made by HTC, Dell, Samsung and LG. HTC is expected to launch a Windows Phone 7 device – HD7 – this week in India at about Rs 30,000.
