Figures were revealed by Achim Berg, VP of business and marketing for Windows Phones, in a Q&A posted on Microsoft’s website. Berg says the number is “in line” with our expectations especially when compared to other new platform introductions.
We would say that 1.5 million is a very small number when you consider the platform launched on 10 devices in 30+ countries. It also shows the cautious buying approach of smartphone industry into Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.
