Microsoft has been quiet at CES this year, but one thing they have announced is their holiday sales. A Microsoft spokesperson said they’ve seen “record sales of Windows Phone this holiday worldwide, nearly doubling phone sales during Christmas week.” That’s good news for Microsoft and Windows Phone as the holiday season is a critical time.

The spokesperson also said “Windows Phone reinforced its position as a top three smartphone operating system and was the fastest-growing platform among the leading operating systems with 156% year-over-year gain.” We’ve heard this stat before and it’s still going strong. Microsoft talked positively about Windows Phone but did not give specific numbers to back it up.

    I’m fine with this statement from MS. But most people scoff because there are no numbers. its probably because record sales for WP devices isnt the same as say Samsung. It still would be nice to see actual numbers.

    The whole year isn’t as many as one week for Samsung. That’s why there are no numbers.
