Microsoft claims sales of 1.5 million Windows Phone ‘07 units in first 6 weeks

Achim Berg, Microsoft’s vice president of business and marketing for Windows Phones, has revealed that Windows Phone ’07 has “more than 4,000 apps” and that “that phone manufacturers sold over 1.5 million phones in the first six weeks.”

With a new platform you have to look at a couple of things, first of all customer satisfaction… Another is phone manufacturer sales – phones being bought and stocked by mobile operators and retailers on their way to customers. We are pleased that phone manufacturers sold over 1.5 million phones in the first six weeks, which helps build customer momentum and retail presence. – Achim Berg

MacDailyNews Take: By our calculations, factoring in channel stuffing and the fact that the IT doofus market is likely now saturated, Windows Phone ’07 critical mass will be achieved on the first Wednesday of never.

  1. Let’s see, one to every MS employee, thousands handed to all large Corporations as samples, hundreds to Tech press, MS employees give out as Xmas gifts and thousands in the pipeline.
