Microsoft Windows Phone 7 hits 1.5 million in sales to retailers
Achim Berg, the vice president of business and marketing for Windows phones, said he knows the company faces stiff competition in the smartphone game. "We're in the race. It's not a sprint, but we are certainly gaining momentum and we're in it for the long run," he said.
The Windows Phone 7 went on sale on in the United States on Nov. 8. In comparison, according to media news site Mashable, Apple's iPhone 4 sold 3 million units in its first six weeks.
In other sales news, Apple TV and Roku are racing to sell 1 million units of their set-top boxes. Shortly after Roku Chief Executive Anthony Wood told Business Insider that his company expects to hit seven-digit sales figures by the end of the year, Apple released a statement saying it expects to top a million this week.
