Yesterday we reported that there were only about 40,000 Windows Phone 7 smartphones sold on launch day, and it seems that this may have been down to actual shortages of the handsets rather than lack of demand for the devices.
Microsoft has responded saying that supplies of Windows Phone 7 devices were tight on launch day, and that they are hoping that supplies will increase shortly.
As is sometimes the case with the launch of a new product, initial supplies are tight. We understand some customers are disappointed to learn their local stores are already out of stock. We hear their concerns and are working diligently with our partners to bring more phones to stores in the coming weeks.
It will be interesting to see what sales figures are like once stores have enough stock of Windows Phone 7 smartphones to meet demand.
