Bloomberg who interviewed Microsoft executive Greg Sullivan is reporting that "the company shipped 2 million phones last quarter." Sullivan wouldn't say how many of those phones were sold to consumers, as "they aren't the retailer" and don't have exact numbers, according to one of Bloomberg.
"Customer satisfaction for the product is at 93% and brand awareness has jumped 22 points to 66% since it was released, Greg Sullivan, a senior product manager at Microsoft, said in an interview, citing internal measures.
There are now 6,500 applications for Windows Phone and 24,000 developers have signed up to build them, Sullivan said."
Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, aims to stem market-share declines to Apple's iPhone and handsets based on Google's Android operating system.
Apple sold 16.2 million iPhones in its most recent quarter, which ended Dec. 25. For now, Microsoft is measuring success more in terms of customer feedback than raw sales figures, said Sullivan, who predicted sales will accelerate. He declined to give a forecast.
