Microsoft sells 240 Million copies of Windows 7 in 12 months

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2010

Microsoft has announced that it has sold more than 240 million copies of Windows 7 (which was launched a year ago this week), Those numbers make it both Microsoft’s and the industry’s fastest-selling OS. The company needed it too. Windows 7 has helped the company overcome much of the negative consumer opinion after the launch of its Vista OS.

It should be noted that Apple has sold about 13.8 million Mac machines worldwide, but still isn’t large enough to compete in sheer new OS installs. It has however received a much faster adoption of its latest OS version.

Samsung claims that they’ve sold a million Galaxy S phones in the US over just a month and a half. We know those aren’t iPhone 4 worthy numbers, but that is pretty amazing.

The success isn’t limited to the US. It took Samsung just three weeks to sell a million Galaxy S smartphones globally and they did that before the device even arrived in the US. The company has sold 300,000 in S. Korea alone during that time and 900,000 for the quarter.

While Apple has been breaking records with iPad sales, Microsoft has been counting their numbers as well. They just announced that they have sold over 150 million Windows 7 licenses since it went on sale. That number is up considerably from the 100 Million copies that they had sold back in April.

In fact, Windows 7 is Microsoft’s fastest selling OS. They are selling about seven copies of Windows 7 every second. Pew Pew Pew. Sales should continue to rise as many more PC users move to Windows 7.

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2010

If you were around during the beginning of instant messaging, then you probably remember ICQ, which set the standard for instant messaging. AOL initially acquired Mirabilis, the Israeli-based company who came up with the program, back in 1996 for $407 million.

Now the company has decided to let it go for just $187.5 million to a Russian investment company, Digital Sky Technologies. I bet this brings back instant messaging memories for many of you.

Palm sells 50,000 Pre smartphones in opening weekend

Posted in Palm by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2009

Verizon getting the Palm Pre in 6 monthsPalm and Sprint haven’t confirmed the numbers officially, but according to JPMorgan in a Wall Street Journal article, “sales in the first two days probably exceeded 50,000.” The figure was “aligned with expectations, but probably fell short of the 146,000 reported first-gen iPhone sales” during its opening weekend. And that was due to “capacity constraints in manufacturing.”

So it looks like the Pre launch was a success. Next weekend’s sales may put it all in perspective. It’s great news for Palm, but it isn’t all roses. We’ll have to see if new Palm owners are still having problems or not.
