    [EN] Cloud-tastic: Microsoft beat expectations with $7B in earnings

    Most of the company’s units saw solid growth. The devices and consumer revenue grew 12 percent, with strong Windows pickup. Commercial revenue was up seven percent, with Office 365 growing 100 percent and Azure revenue increasing 150 percent.


    SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Microsoft's third-quarter results were in the clouds.

    Propelled by strong sales in the fledgling cloud-computing market, the software behemoth on Thursday reported $20.4 billion in revenue on profits of nearly $7 billion (68 cents per share).


    “This quarter’s results demonstrate the strength of our business, as well as the opportunities we see in a mobile-first, cloud-first world. We are making good progress in our consumer services like Bing and Office 365 Home, and our commercial customers continue to embrace our cloud solutions. Both position us well for long-term growth,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in a statement.

    Microsoft Q3 strong: Office 365 subscriptions surge, Windows upgrades pay off

    Microsoft's fiscal third quarter was better than expected as the company added 1 million Office 365 Home subscribers, benefited from the enterprise move away from Windows XP, rode its enterprise unit and added cloud features.

    Meanwhile, Microsoft Surface revenue was up 50 percent in the quarter compared to a year ago to $500 million.

    Overall, Microsoft reported third quarter earnings of $6.97 billion, or 68 cents a share, on revenue of $20.4 billion.

    Wall Street was expecting Microsoft to report fiscal third quarter earnings of 63 cents a share on revenue of $20.39 billion.

    The quarter is notable for Microsoft since it's the first one with Satya Nadella as the leader. Nadella has made a few appearances at Microsoft's Build conference and the Office for iPad launch. In addition, the quarter is the last one before Nokia is added into the revenue mix. Analysts widely expect Nokia to ding Microsoft's profit margins and earnings for the foreseeable future.

    Por que será que o Google está apavorado com a possibilidade da Samsung substituir o Android pelo seu próprio sistema operacional, Tizen, eternamente "em desenvolvimento"? Quando a Apple rosna para a Samsung nos tribunais devido a patentes violadas pelo Android, quem é que pode se dar mal?

    The number one mobile manufacturer in the world is Samsung. The company sold 107.5 million smartphones during the second quarter vis-a-vis 90.4 million mobiles it sold during the same quarter in 2012. The company's global marketshare in the mobile market too went up to 24.7% from 21.5% in the previous year.

    At no. 2 is Finnish mobile giant Nokia. The company sold 60.9 million mobiles during the second fiscal of 2013. This is less than the 83.4 million mobile phone devices that the company shipped during the same quarter last year. Nokia's global marketshare too fell to 14% from 19.9% a year ago.

    The third biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world is Apple. The company clocked sales of 31.9 million during the second quarter of 2013 vis-a-vis 28.9 million it sold during the same quarter last year. The company presently has 7.3% marketshare of the global mobile market, up from 6.9% in 2012.

    The fourth position goes to South Korean electronic giant LG Electronics. With a global sales of 17 million during the quarter, the company holds 3.9% mobile marketshare globally. The company witnessed a jump in sales over the second quarter of 2012 when it sold 14.3 million mobile phones and held a marketshare of 3.4%.

    At number five is Chinese mobile maker ZTE with 15.2 million sales globally. ZTE too saw its mobile sales fall during the second quarter of 2013 compared to the same quarter of previous year. The company sold 17.1 million mobiles during the second quarter of 2012 and held a marketshare of 4.1%. The company's marketshare dipped to 3.5% in the quarter ended July 2013.

    At number sixth position in the global mobile market too is a Chinese company, Huawei. The company saw a jump in its sales over the same quarter in the previous year. Huawei recorded a sale of 11.2 million mobiles during the second quarter of 2013, up from 10.8% during the same quarter in 2012. The company's marketshare, however, remained static at 2.6%.

    Chinese hardware giant Lenovo ranks at number seventh. The world's second-biggest PC maker sold 10.9 million phones during the second quarter of 2012. The company looking to expand in the mobile market has a marketshare of 2.5% in the global smartphone market, up from 1.6% Lenovo held during the same quarter in 2012.

    Chinese phonemaker TCL Communication ranks at number eighth on the list. The company's total mobile phone sales during the second quarter of 2013 stood at 10.1 million with a global marketshare of 2.3%.
