Yes, Microsoft sold 5m or what-so-ever amount of units. But the fact that most of those device had been return back to the point of purchased and have it replace by a new Windows phone or a different phone manufacturer.

Microsoft lacks the capability to provide enjoyment to the user as they limit the features of the phone. Especially the application seen on the Store (Marketplace). Most, no, entire application seems to be odd and not working. If they intend or say that Microsoft provide over a thousand application. Well those application are never-the-less not worthfit. Hope Microsoft study and test first those application being provided by different application developer before releasing it on the Store.

LOLwinphone, 08 Jan 2013maybe they sold 100 wp8 phones last year and then now they sold ... moreTrue,
its meaningless to say "5 times more" when the original numbers are not known.

windowsphone is the worst OS in the world, 1% market share. Sales are ZERO in US market. No interest.
