"First, Andy Lees, SVP of Microsoft's Mobile Communications Business, said
the company has sold more than 50 million Windows Mobile devices over its
lifetime. Then, HTC's CEO Peter Chou came on stage and reminisced that his
company has sold more than 40 million HTC Windows Mobile devices around the
world. Chou: "12 years ago when we started our company, we met with
Microsoft early on. It was clear that we shared the same vision of smart
connectivity. I'm an old veteran of Windows Mobile. We try really hard to
make all the visions happen, and we have sold more than 40 million HTC
Windows mobile phones around the world." "
"The next conclusion to make is that the other 49 OEM partners, including
Palm (NSDQ: PALM), Motorola (NYSE: MOT) and Samsung, have sold a 10 million
phones all combined. "
