Impressive: Windows 8 Pre-Sales Up 40% Compared To Windows 7

Microsoft Stock Revenue Presales Thumb A lot of people are under the impression Windows 8 does not well. Apparently, this is not the case – Windows 8 is already outselling Windows 7

In a quarterly investor call, Microsoft reported earnings of $17.4 billion. $800 million of deferred revenue was from Windows 8 pre-sales.

  • According to Microsoft this means pre-sales are up 40% in comparison to Windows 7


Despite the impressive outlook, Microsoft shares dropped about 1% in AH, but luckily Microsoft did not drop as sharply as Google – they somehow accidentally released the earnings before the bell and the stock fell nearly 10% at one point.
