Phone Sales Collapse for Microsoft
Microsoft reported a 2% year-on-year decline in revenue in the third quarter to 21.7 billion dollars, blaming the changes in its phone business, which it is restructuring. Revenue from sales of phone hardware fell 54% to 1.1 billion dollars, but Microsoft's Devices & Consumer Other segment saw revenue rise 33%. That segment includes advertising, Xbox Live transactional revenue and Office 365 Home Premium subscriptions. The Commercial Other segment, which includes Microsoft's Azure cloud business, lifted revenues 47% to 3.3 billion dollars. source: Microsoft presentation
