Windows Phone sales have seen rise to 4 times compared to 2011. Steve Ballmer has announced that the increase is due to the new Windows Phone 8 features, the improved screens and the powerful handsets overall.
For its several weeks on sale, the Windows Phone is doing very well. Nokia and HTC’s handsets are getting great reviews and they was sold out in many countries.
Even though the Windows Phone 8 is selling much better than Windows Phone 7, it has been criticized widely for the lack of applications.
Ballmer however, stated that the Windows Phone Store is offering over 100,000 applications and soon it will have 46 out of the 50 top used apps.
It does seem that Q4 is pretty good for Microsoft, as the company revealed yesterday that it has shifted over 40 million W8 licenses, which is much faster than Windows 7.
Ballmer did not mention how the Surface tablet is selling, but he did said that there are over 1,500 PCs that are Windows 8 certified.
