Microsoft on WP7 sales: “over 1.5 million phones in the first six weeks”

Mircosoft has just released some impressive stats when it comes to their new mobile OS Windows Phone 7. They have been incredibly secretive about sales until today. Achim Berg, Microsoft’s vice president of business and marketing for Windows Phones states that since “rolling out Windows Phone 7, which launched in Europe and the Asia Pacific region on October 21 and in the United States and Canada on November 8… We are pleased that phone manufacturers sold over 1.5 million phones in the first six weeks”.

Certainly an impressive start. No word on how many devices have been sold by Rogers, Bell or TELUS (SaskTel is getting ready to launch the LG Optimus Quantum soon) but Berg states that “Windows Phone 7 is just the beginning… 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 and we will have a broader portfolio of devices from phone manufacturers at different price points delivering on our commitment of providing customers choice.”

So possibly new carriers such as Mobilicity, WIND and Videotron will bring on a Windows Phone 7 in 2011.
