  1. Microsoft has shared some statistics on how the Windows Phone 7 ecosystem has performed during its first year of availability. Unfortunately, the software giant has still not shared how many devices have been actually sold to consumers.

    Obviously, if MS won't reveal the number of phones sold it's for a very good reason (which, of course, can only mean sales are not very good).

    I LOVE my windows phone. There are a few bugs, but they will be fixed in some near future updates. LG is coming out with one specific to the quantum, I'm very much looking forward to that.

    2 things bother me:
    The alarm is adjusted with the volume on the device, you can't set a volume for it. So, if my phone is medium after listening to some music I can't hardly hear the alarm. Also, the alarm sounds are silly and don't wake you up. The ringer works the same way.

    the other thing is that most of the good apps are paid apps and there aren't very many of them

    I think overall the numbers are promising but he has only chosen to reveal numbers that are indeed promising. As the above poster mentioned the number of devices sold hasn't been revealed for a reason. With that said as someone who owns a WP7 in a corporate environment I believe WP7 will really take off once they release the device management software (slated for release for the end of the year I have heard) and Lync for WP7.

    The consumer market is something different and it will be interesting to see how things play out.
