Microsoft, of course, struck a positive note about the latest Lumia phones. "These are exciting times around Windows Phone," said Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Windows Phone Division, in a blog post. "In June we showed the first glimpses of Windows Phone 8, our most innovative release ever, and one we can't wait to get in the hands of people around the world later this year."
Microsoft shares slipped 0.38% to $30.27 on Wednesday.
