    I'm telling you, from the recent insane amount of love from tech reviewers, bloggers, and customers, to how much news I've been seeing about the Focus S and Titan, to the recent awesome advertising by Microsoft and Nokia, to how often the Focus S and Titan have been backordered from different sites, to the reported awesome sales of the Lumia 800 & it's #1 spot in France it held, to the Focus Flash commercials, to the crazy amount of giveaways on Twitter by Microsoft, to the $25 app card program, I'm thinking that we may be in for an awesome surprise in terms of Q4 market share for Windows Phone.

    Anyone else agree?

    I honestly think WP won't blow up until windows 8 is released. MS should also take advantage of the crazy Xbox/Kinect sales by advertising more on the dashboard.

    I think sales are heading in the right direction now, but it will be some time before they become a player in the mobile phone world. I hope by the end of 2012 they will have between 4% and 5% of the mobile phone market. I think that is a lofty, but attainable goal. WebOS going open source will be the undeterminate x-factor though. Mobile phone makers do love open source.

    I really hope MS can incorporate more Apple technology in the OS. most notably something like AirPlay where I can play video, music, photos and mirroring to the Xbox, and Home Sharing so I can access my Windows and Zune library from my phone. That should eliminate that BS "lack of ecosystem support" tech blogs love to bring up on every review of WP.
