record

AT&T announced today that it sold more than ten million smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2012. This surpasses the previous record of 9.4 million set last year.

While AT&T didn't break down the sales figures Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO for AT&T commented,

"During the quarter, we averaged more than 110,000 smartphone sales a day as customers flocked to our leading portfolio of the latest Android, Apple and Windows devices."

de la Vega also commented yesterday at the AT&T Developer Summit at CES 2013 that AT&T sells more Windows Phones than any other carrier in the world. While Android and iPhone sales likely contributed heavily to the 10 million in sales, we suspect that AT&T's Windows Phone lineup wasn't sitting idly by on the sidelines and helped contribute to the record sales figures as well.

We've been covering the launch of Windows Phone in Indonesia via the Lumia 710 and 800 for a few weeks now. Officially being released over the weekend, the launch was proceeded by numerous events to spark interest and build momentum.

One of those events was a Nokia Developer Day day sponsored by Microsoft and it was attempting to break a record with at least 800 developers coding at once for new Windows Phone apps. Now, the Indonesian Record Museum (Museum Rekor Indonesia / MURI), which is similar to Guinness for world-record keeping, has officially certified the day as a record with more than 800 devs participating in the 24-hour event.

Entered as record number 5308 in the MURI archives, the award was accepted by Narenda Wicaksono, Development Operations Manager Nokia Indonesia and Microsoft's Risman Adnan, Developer Director of Microsoft Indonesia (image above).

Nokia Developer Day was held on February 4 through the 5th at Graha Mandala Siliwangi, Bandung and seems to have been a resounding success in both gaining attention and hopefully a trove new applications for the Indonesian Marketplace. One of those apps evidently is a Reuters Kompass TV video streaming program, making it one of the first on-demand news apps for Windows Phone and it should be available to all users in the next few months.
