9.3 million Lumia smartphones were sold by Microsoft last quarter, Surface sales also satisfactory
Windows Phone sales have been higher than ever in the quarter (though, of course, still lagging way behind Android and iOS sales). Microsoft sold a record 9.3 million Lumia handsets - considerably more than in the quarter ended June 30 (5.8 million units), and beating the previous record of 8.8 million units from the same period last year (when Nokia was still in charge of the Lumia line). Overall, Microsoft has made $2.6 billion in “phone hardware revenue” last quarter.
Tablet sales have also been good. Although Microsoft didn’t say how many Surface units it sold, it did mention that Surface revenue was of $908 million - mainly thanks to the Surface Pro 3, which was released in late June. This is a re-conformation of the fact that the Surface Pro 3 is off to a good start - as we reported earlier this month.
Microsoft also said that it sold 2.4 million Xbox consoles (it’s not clear how many of those were Xbox One models).
