The company's More Personal Computing division, which handles familiar products like Windows, Surfaces, and the Xbox, took in $9.5 billion in revenue, up 1% year-over-year. Windows OEM revenue fell just 2%, while Surface revenue increased to $1.1 billion, up from $713 million a year ago. Windows Phone continues its free-fall, though. Microsoft says its mobile revenue fell 46% compared to a year ago. Microsoft says Windows 10 is now active on over 270 million devices.
The Intelligent Cloud division generated $6.1 billion in revenue, a 3% increase from a year ago.

Azure cloud revenue increased 120%, and the company says usage of its Azure compute and Azure SQL database services has more than doubled since this time last year.
Productivity and Business Processes, which is responsible for Office and other productivity software, grew its revenue 1% year-over-year to $6.5 billion. Office 365 commercial revenue increased 63% from a year ago in constant currency, while Office 365 consumer revenue grew 6% by the same measure.
