600,000 New Windows Phones Sold In 2 weeks?

November 28, 2011 5 Comments

Sales figures have become hard to come by, even when your trying to track down sales figures from products that have the most market-share. Take Google for instance, they boast about how many Android devices have been activated but not how many sold. Which could be anything from updating your device to flashing new ROMS.

For Windows Phone it has been even more of a struggle getting those numbers since as of now it still has alot of catching up to do as far as sales are concerned. WMpoweruser.com though is using Facebook activity on Windows Phone as a marker to try and gauge how many Windows Phones have been sold.

Now the latest data shows a sharply upward spike in the number of users, increasing from 1,000,000 Monthly Active Users on the 11th November to 1,100,000 on the 25/11/11.

If our previously calculated multiple holds true that would correspond to around 600,000 new Windows Phone 7 users,

Now Windows Phone has a long way to go but if this data is even remotely true, then Microsoft is finally on the right path. With new marketing campaigns, Nokia finally joining the party and new devices from Samsung and HTC – Windows Phone is finally gaining some traction.

    Your math is a bit off.

      LOL – it uses an algorithm that was proved correct last time around. Since Windows Phone has FB built in, alot of people do not bother with the actual app   : )

        Sorry, i didn’t read the source entirely, i missed the modifier they are using. I just looked at a graph.

        on a side note, i can’t believe there are that many people NOT connected to fb natively in peoples hub.

          Some use the app, some use FB from the people hub.  I use both but thats just me…   : )

            I also use the app, but just for the messaging. And it’s a peace of shit.

            Most of the time it shows me the first message in the conversation. Since as of recently all the communication with a single person is under the same thread, that means it sometimes takes me up to 30 seconds of frantic scrolling to get to the last message! Whoever is writing the app, is an idiot.
