Windows and Office is continuing, but the divisions of online services and low earnings drag the game console back

Microsoft was better than analysts expected the fourth quarter of its financial, driven by an unexpected rise in sales of its Windows operating system for PCs.

But profits fell due to unexpected losses in its Entertainment and Devices Division, which houses the Xbox 360 game console and its software groups for Windows Mobile Phone.

revenues reached a record $ 17.4bn (£ 10.8 billion), up 6% on a year earlier, but earnings fell to $ 5.1 billion (60 cents per share ) from $ 5.2 billion in the previous year - mainly due to a surprising loss of $ 229 million division of E & D, against a profit of 210 million meters a year.

benefits expected from 58c per share, or $ 4.93bn, on revenues of $ 17.2bn.

The stock has risen 20% so far this year, outpacing the Nasdaq's gain of 16% and a 10% increase in the Standard & Poor 500. Microsoft shares added 90 cents, or nearly 3%, to $ 31.91 in extended trade on Thursday.

But it is still below levels staggering 10 years ago, as investors worry Company's ability to match Apple and Google in online technology and mobile. The market value of Apple is now comfortably double that of Microsoft, and the income from their iPhones last quarter exceeded the total sales of Microsoft.

Bing search engine that also powers search at Yahoo, is still a great lossmaker for the company. Revenues from the Online Services division left by sequential quarter of $ 784m to 707m, despite an increase of 6%, in line with total revenues last year.

"The pace of Windows has been a positive surprise, to analyze growth of around 4%, against expectations of a 4% decline," said Josh Olson, a analyst at Edward Jones. Microsoft said it was due to companies that buy licenses for Windows 7, the current operating system.

Profits from the Office, which depends on the updates, especially corporate customers, has remained too strong, jumping 14%.
