    Steve Ballmer confirms Windows Phones sales 5 times faster than last year over Christmas | WMPoweruser

    At CES 2013 yesterday Steve Ballmer made a surprise appearance at Qualcomms keynote, where he once again reiterated that Windows Phone was doing much better this last holiday season than the one before.
    The Verge has Steve Ballmer saying:
    Ballmer says during Christmas, Windows Phone was selling five times more devices than the same period last year.
    Using our old stand-in, Facebook Monthly Active Users, we can also easily confirm that many more new Windows Phone users joined the club in the last quarter of 2012, and in December 2012 6 times more new FB MAU were added than in Q4 2012.
    Given that Steve Ballmer has access to the real numbers, and to a large degree validates the Facebook numbers, the question arises as to how many Windows Phones were sold exactly last quarter.
    Gartner said 2759000 Windows Phones were sold in Q4 2011, and 4.6 times that is 12,305,140. Canalys said 2.5 million Windows Phones were shipped in Q4 2011, and times 4.46 thats 11,150,000 Windows Phones sold. IDC did not have specific Windows Phone sales numbers for Q4 2011.
    It seems however that it is likely that Windows Phone sales will top 10 million last quarter, which is good news for all concerned. Be warned however that shipments are not the same as sales, and some Q4 2012 sales may have been from shipments made in Q3 2012, making it very difficult to predict what Nokia will announce on the 24th January.

    YAY!!!! :D

    Shipped does not = sold. Shipped just means they were available to be sold. You wouldn't multiply that figure.

    Oops just re-read your last sentence
