The sales and revenue growth is due to strong demand from the consumers for it's new phones and great support from U.S. cellular carriers who are in the process of launching some of the
most anticipated Windows Mobile phones in years.

It's visible feedback system helps reduce error while at the same time show you which key you are pressing.
