2 Million Windows Phone 7 Devices Shipped Last Quarter

Ryan Whitwam

Microsoft has again broken their vow of silence to release some Windows Phone 7 figures . But really, we don't know why they were being so coy about it. According to Microsoft, 2 million Windows Phone 7 devices were shipped last quarter. This is not the number actually sold to customers, but 2 million shipped to retailers is not a bad showing. Still, we're hoping to see some sales numbers soon.

Microsoft said that brand awareness of Windows Phone 7 has spiked 22% since launch to 66% total. User satisfaction is also looking good at 93%. For a fledgling platform, those are good numbers. There was also an update on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace, which now has over 6500 applications. Microsoft still has a long way to catch up to Android and iOS, but this is just the first step in recapturing their shrinking market share.
