I could write a long post about all the things that Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore, director of the Windows Phone program at the software giant, said at the D: Dive Into Mobile conference in San Francisco today.
But it’s mostly stuff you’ve heard before. Far more important was what he didn’t say: How many phones Microsoft has sold since Windows Phone 7′s splashy launch last month.
Without sales figures, Microsoft’s mobile hype is all talk. The company never hesitates to brag about how many Windows operating systems licenses it’s sold, after all.
Great haircut, Joe. Now get some numbers and you’ll really be styling.
