Devices and Consumer Licensing Performance

D&C Licensing revenue decreased $391 million or 9%, due mainly to a $176 million decline in Windows Phone revenue, as well as lower revenue from licenses of Windows and Office Consumer. Windows Phone revenue decreased, primarily due to lower per unit royalties based upon the mix of devices sold by our licensees. Windows OEM revenue declined 2%, primarily due to declines of 4% in OEM Pro revenue and 1% in OEM non-Pro revenue, consistent with dynamics in the commercial and consumer PC markets. Office Consumer revenue declined 5%, reflecting the transition of customers to Office 365 Consumer.

D&C Licensing gross margin decreased $102 million or 3%, primarily due to the decline in revenue, offset in part by a $289 million or 51% decrease in cost of revenue. D&C Licensing cost of revenue decreased, due mainly to a $239 million or 61% decline in traffic acquisition costs, primarily because our joint strategic initiatives with Nokia ended in conjunction with the acquisition of NDS.
