It has not been a good day for earnings announcements for Amazon, but Microsoft has a very different picture painted after announcing that their Q1 fiscal year 2015 financial results also saw a whopping 2.4 million Xbox consoles sold in the same corresponding period. In terms of percentage, Microsoft claims that this would number a 102% growth where unit sales are concerned. Do bear in mind that the Xbox brand happens to be part of the Devices and Consumer division, which also saw a 47% increase where revenue is concerned to hit the $10.96 billion mark.
When it was first announced that the Nokia Devices & Services business will eventually end up as part of Microsoft, it was also divulged that Lumia, the smartphone brand, would end up as part of the Microsoft family, too. Well, there has been transitions and changes made from Nokia to Microsoft in various websites, not to mention packaging and other consumer touch points, but Microsoft Lumia is now official.
