Despite speculation that Windows Phone 7 devices weren't selling well, Microsoft reported sales of 1.5 million handsets. Of course, as ITWorld reported yesterday, that's the number that manufacturers have sold/shipped to carriers worldwide and not the actual number sold to consumers. Microsoft also seems to be lowering sales expectations by using language like "we're in it for the long run" - not something that inspires a lot of immediate confidence. It does, however, illustrate that WP7 will be around a lot longer than the ill-fated Kin.
What does this mean for users? Is Windows Phone 7 a viable platform worth a new two year contract?
