A week after the heralded launch of Microsoft's smartphone, not a soul really knows about Windows Phone 7 product sales. While virtually all smartphone makers proudly trumpet original revenue statistics after a launch, Microsoft has not. With no official data about Windows Phone 7 revenue circulation, industry experts are concluding the new Microsoft smartphone is a flop.

The ads “phone to conserve us from our phone,” cost Microsoft around $500 million, yet the phone is presumed to still be a dud. The Windows Phone 7 had been launched on multiple handsets, and Mediapost suggests that this might be a reason for their lack of success. The Apple's iPhone on the other hand sold around 143,000 a day for three weeks when it launched. Mediapost claims that despite the fact that the Windows Phone 7 did sell out at many stores that was not because of demand, but rather due to a lack of product.

The annual shareholders meeting in Bellevue, Wash., conveniently didn’t disclose the Windows Phone 7 sales reports. CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, made the primary point of the conference the Kinect gaming console instead. Over one million Kinect gaming attachments were sold within the first 10 days after it debuted. November 7 AT&T and T-Mobile released the Windows Phone 7 for Samsung, LG, and HTC. At the Microsoft shareholders meeting, all Ballmer said about Windows Phone 7 had been that "it marks the beginning, we think, of a new era in intelligent phones. The reaction has been really fantastic."
<p><strong>The complications for Microsoft Smartphones</strong></p>
The Windows Phone is expected to bomb as outlined by the blogosphere. The LA Times reports that the Windows Phone 7 cards are being “fried” in the Samsung model. As outlined by PC World the office apps not only run poorly but the device is highly insecure. TechieInsider says that Microsoft can’t do with their phones what they do with their computers; put out the products and fix the bugs along the way.
