Forbes contributor, Ewance Spence, has a gut feeling, and we are inclined to agree with him. He believes Windows Phone is on course to sell 1 million handsets per week; this is very believable since Q4 saw 4.4 million Nokia Lumia handsets sold, no doubt other OEMs such as HTC and Samsung are chipping in to bring this number to one million devices sold per week.

According to Spence, Ballmer claimed that Windows Phone handsets were selling four times that of the previous year, then went on to state at CES 2013 that sales are reached five times that of 2011. No doubt Ballmer was very animated during the time he was making these announcement, this man is the most animated and excited CEO to ever lead Microsoft, that's pure love for the company right there.

Due to what Steve Ballmer had said, Ewnace Spence came to the conclusion that Windows Phone devices sales are approaching 1 million sold per week. It makes sense, even more so now that Windows Phone 8 is out along with the devices such as the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X doing relatively well in spite of hostile competition from Android and iOS.

With the likes of Huawei entering the market with its Ascend line of Windows Phone 8 devices, and Lenovo making plans, it is possible this number could rise to 2 million by the end of 2013.
