Microsoft ships 2 million Windows Phone 7 handsets, no word on how many sold

Microsoft says that it has shipped 2 million handsets to carriers, but there's still no word on how many have been sold to customers.

Microsoft says that it has shipped 2 million handsets to carriers, but there's still no word on how many have been sold to customers.

Greg Sullivan, Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 group product manager, announced this figure in an interview with Bloomberg News. This figure represents the number of handsets shipped to carriers and NOT the number of handsets sold to consumers. This figure still remains a mystery.

We do get one metric though - Sullivan said that customer satisfaction was at 93% and brand awareness was at 66%, up 22% since the platform was released.

We previously got a heads-up when the company had shipped 1.5 million handsets to carriers.

Sullivan also announced that there are 6,500 applications for the Windows Phone platform and 24,000 developers signed up on board.
