Microsoft may have sold 877,000 WP7 smartphones to carriers and retailers in February alone
Seems like the guys at The Next Web are good at nailing predictions when it comes to Windows Phone 7 devices. Back in January, they correctly estimated that Microsoft had sold approximately 2 million WP7 handsets to retailers and carriers by the time of the research. The number corresponded to what Microsoft announced at the end of the month – more than 2 million units sold since the day of the platform's launch. By applying the same mathematical magic in their latest analysis, the guys are now claiming that 877,000 smartphones running Windows Phone 7 have been sold by Microsoft in February alone.

We should mention at this point that the estimate doesn't necessarily translate into almost a million WP7 devices reaching retail customers in February, the number only represents how many units have been shipped to Microsoft's business partners for further resale. However, can the research be precise once again? After all, WP7 smartphones have been growing in popularity across Europe even though they are facing serious competition. We are expecting an official announcement from Microsoft, but if the above estimate is correct, February would be WP7's best month yet.
