MBD revenue increased primarily reflecting sales of the 2010 Microsoft Office system.

Consumer revenue increased $16 million or 2% due mainly to increased sales of the 2010 Microsoft Office system.

MBD revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 included a favorable foreign currency impact of $121 million.

MBD operating income increased primarily due to revenue growth. An increase in cost of revenue, which resulted primarily from higher online operation and support costs, was nearly offset by a decrease in sales and marketing expenses, which resulted primarily from lower headcount-related costs.
