The year 2011 has not been a great year for Windows Phone, but 2012 may be different. Now there is a decent selection of Windows Phone devices that are out there, including the Nokia Lumia 900. Morgan Stanley is expecting shipment of Nokia’s new Windows-based devices to hit about 37 million units in 2012 and 64 million in 2013.
When you include HTC Windows Phone handsets, about 43 million handsets total powered by Windows Phones could be shipped this year and 74 million the year after. These are numbers from just two OEMs.
?We?ve got a lot of room to go in selling Windows Phones,? stated Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). ?But I feel very much like the work we?re doing is really going to pay off.?
