    Maybe they stopped reporting that metric because they realized it reflected more about how many crappy apps there are in the Windows Store as compared to quality apps.

    That much is true of all the app counts but it still reflects growth. I think they stopped counting because of idroid and wanted to wait for a better sounding number

    I think we stopped counting, because the situation is confusing right now :p

    Do you think that doubt would stop if mobile gets feature updates in fall, and someone like alcatel or HP released a new handset (or wiley fox, as they have said they will)?

    What would it actually take to convince the doubters?

    Nadella on his hands and knees saying pretty please use our phones i'll promise I'll be good? XD

    A phone that acts as a hoover board?

    Then again, do regular people even care? Are ordinary everyday windows 10 mobile users are following hardware releases or official statements from MS? Is this website remotely representative?

    The average person, at least in the U.S., has only heard of the big manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, maybe HTC. It would take something like that to get any attention.
    Then again even W10M users wouldn't support a manufacturer trying to put out a new device so how can we expect others to pay attention?

    I know, and the likes of where Windows is moving as a whole says nothing, right? Sarcasm here of course...

    If that's the case the average person doesn't even know windows 10 mobile exists. They would see that first phone by Lenovo, huawei, Samsung, htc or whomever as a first. It would only be born in the public consciousness when the first well known phone is marketed (surface surely would also count, people know about the surface brand)

    It would, true. When its time it will arrive. Items have paved and are paving the way for such new(er) device(s).

    That's surprising, education is one of the stores stronger areas. I just searched spelling and there was a lot of spelling quizzes and games.

    I suppose you want a specific kind of spelling game tho...one where it reads the word out, rather than spelling or fixing written words.
