Microsoft is aiming for 100 million Windows Phones per year


Microsoft’s chief operating officer Kevin Turner told WPC 11 attendees that Microsoft hoped to ship 100 million Windows Phone units each year on the back of its deal with Nokia. 

"We have to do some very strategic things to get our mobile phone volume up," Turner said.

Turner said Microsoft’s plan was to win by making “big bets” including Windows Phone 7. 

Possibly to help this goal Microsoft intended to build 75 more stores around USA to push their products, probably a good idea given the negative spin phone retailers currently give to Windows Phone 7 handsets, despite high customer satisfaction rates.
