    I just read an article which stated that Microsoft had just come out with news that WP is the second most used OS here...! And i have no doubt it is, I've been seeing it happen right before my eyes...easily spotted half a dozen lumias and an 8s jst by looking around randomly...:) i recommended the 620 to a friend and he jst got it today, and seeing that another friend is following suit...its such a pleasant feeling to see the WP family grow all around you..:) we are finally starting to see the fruits of our efforts...!

    I read that too. Can't possibly be the second most used OS. Top two have to be Android and Blackberry in that order. Is probably the second fastest growing OS?

    Nokia has dominated the non-smartphone Indian market for a long time. It has tough competition from Samsung and RIM in the smartphone category. Still, people kind of trust the Nokia brand. 620 seems to have been an instant hit and was "Out of Stock" on major ecommerce websites within days of launching.

    After owning an N900 and being disappointed with what Nokia did to Maemo, I had thought I will never be using its phones again. But WP8 was too hard to resist.

    Microsoft Probably meant WP marketshare on a quarterly basis...? Pretty sure bb is losing a lot on sales, haven't heard or seen anyone purchasing a bb7 phone in a long time...and z10 isnt helping sales one bit, you should have seen the uproar on twitter when the price was announced to be 43k...! :P
    and pretty sure WP has decent momentum here; I read abt a survey done in India..android was leading by a big num, WP at distant 9%, BB at 3.5%...and iOS at 1%...:P And the survey ws done b/w sept-Oct..while nowhere near threatening android, atleast they are at 2nd place..so am quite sure Microsoft got their facts right...:)

    Once the 520 and 720 are out in India they will give a tough fight to 10,000-20,000 bracket.
    Nokia did a good thing by completing the range from low to high...

    People who laughed at me buying the 920 are now seriously looking forward for these low end devices...

    People love the WP8 UI, the simplicity, the quick navigation.
    And the way Nokia are supporting the WP8 is awesome....

    Its great nokia are launching cheap but quality devices esp the 520. 620 is a bit overpriced but worth a buy. Once WhatsApp issue is fixed, sales will go up

    5 of My friends brought 620 & one friend has brought 720!! whenever I go to the nokia's authorized dealer shop I will asl "Which Smartphone is Best Selling " He instantly replied "620 is selling really well", The Shopkeeper told he sold 6 720's within a time of half an hour, that too no one has realized 720 has released!! I think by end of 2013 WP will reach b/w 15-20 percent marketshare, More the Cellphones sold=more number of developers= More Number of Apps!! That may be the reason Nokia is selling 520, 620 & 720 for very cheap price!! But i have not seen any marketing for 520 & 720!!
