Windows Phone 7 sales underwhelm

But don’t worry, they’ll sell 5 million Kinects before Christmas!

The sales appear to be weak in the United States for Microsoft, almost as weak as the Microsoft Kin, which sold a mere 10,000 units. These sales figures do not include the 87,000 units allocated to every Microsoft Employee, or the 25,000 units that Dell will be trading their BlackBerry’s for.

And as far as people claiming this is a supply issue not a lack of interest, do you really think it would have been wise to allot $500 million for advertising and then only have 40K units available for people? That seems, I dunno, stupid?
