Microsoft announced that during its last quarter that ended on March 31 (its 2015 third fiscal quarter), it had sold 8.6 million units of its Lumia smartphones. which was an increase of 18% compared to the same period a year earlier.
Overall, revenues from phones came in at $1.4 billion for the quarter, which was down 16% compared to a year ago. Microsoft also sold 24.7 million non-Lumia phones during the quarter, which was also down compared to a year ago. Microsoft said the "market for feature phones continues to contract". Hopefully, Microsoft will offer more info on its phone business during its conference call with financial analysts later today.
Although Microsoft sold 8.6 million units of Lumia smartphones, that is down from last quarter where it sold 10.5 million.
Windows Phone revenue declined by 16% primarily due to a "higher mix of low royalty devices".
