    Hey, everyone,

    For the past few months, I've been seeing quite a few WP7 devices around town. Our regional carrier, MTS, recently added the Lumia 710 to their lineup, and I guess it's been seen as a low-cost well performing smartphone, and has been adopted by many.

    Anyways, today I saw 3 Lumia 710s, a 610 AND a 900! Oddly enough, Nokia devices are the only WPs currently available on most carriers here in Canada, but I've seen quite a few of them around.

    How often do you guys generally see WPs out in the wild, and what brand/model do you see most often?

    In my neighborhood in Queens, NY, I've only seen two Windows Phones. One is my best friend's - she has a Lumia 710. The other was most likely an HTC Radar that someone in her apartment building had when I was passing her by on the stairs one evening. I didn't get a long look at the phone, but it was white and she had pink tiles going on. :P Usually I only see iPhones (especially when I go to concerts in the City, oddly enough) and Android phones.

    I've seen a few of them actually. Not nearly as many iPhones and Androids.

    But I know that one of my employees just bought the Lumia 900 for her husband and she currently has an iPhone. However, after playing with his 900 and me showing her some things on my Focus Flash she is already saying she is going to get a WP when she is due for an upgrade.

    Another co-worker was in my office the other day and saw my phone and asked me about it. She has just bought an iPhone and after seeing mine took it back to wait for the WP8 to be released.

    Besides my lumia 900, my coworker currently has a White Lumia 900, and I saw about 6-7 Lumia 900's while on vacation at disneyland while waiting in line for various rides a few months ago.
