    I've seen 10 or so out here in the Chicago suburbs. And I've had 3 or 4 ask me about my 920 just as I was walking past. There is interest...

    On the bus to work I saw someone bust out a cyan Lumia 920. This is the first Windows Phone I've seen "in the wild" - at least since I started paying attention. :3

    My friend has a Windows phone. It's running WP7, I'm not sure exactly which version (I think it's 7.8). I haven't seen many besides hers.

    Seeing that WP only holds like what, 3% of the mobile market share- it's tought to ever find anyone with a Windows Phone- I personally do not know anyone withone

    However, when somebody notices my phone, they are almost always interested in it because they've most likely never seen one before LoL- So I give them the goold ol' show off presentation with live tiles, the utter smoothness, speed, and fluid feel of the phone, and of course XBL integration into the phone - by the end of the 'demo' they are usually impressed

    My wife and I both own the old Samsung focus and upped to the 920. Convinced my mother in law to get a 900, likes it but barely uses it.

    My Co worker bought a 900 after I told him to ditch his gingerbread android, loves it.

    My Brother owns the 808 and now the 928.

    Other family members and friends increasingly interested, much more so than wp7 or when wp8 launched. Word is getting out if very slowly.

    One guy at my work has a lumia 800, that's it.... Whenever people notice my 920 they are always like "Ooh is that the new xperia??" and I'm just like *facepalm* "I don't want to live anymore."

    I mean honestly how can you mistake the beautifully curved 920 with one of those ugly rectangular boxes??

    Yeah, similar story. I had a wallpaper with the Windows logo on my inc2, and somebody was like "OMG is that a Windows phone?" I was appalled. Such a shame that WP isn't more widely known, that someone would mistake an android device for one.

    I saw a cashier at Walmart with a Lumia 521, and a random guy with a 920 at McDonald's. Other than that, not much.

    Well, let's see. I convinced three people at my university to switch; also, my mother, my father... I also know of a handful of others at my university who own one (three happen to be WP devs). I'm working on getting my sister convinced. She seems to have some strange impression that 'nobody likes Windows Phone', contrary to all of the overwhelming evidence from the people who own them who absolutely love them. I will most likely convince a few more family members and friends once Sprint, T-Mobile, and other carriers really start getting the ball rolling (people also don't seem to notice that Windows Phone is only really just starting to hit the US carrier market - Sprint is awaiting WP arrival, T-Mobile is starting off, Verizon is starting off with its first true flagship, U.S. Cellular, etc.).

    there are definitely more people I know who own a WP than a BB10 and I believe this is a sign that MS is doing a good job. Are they thriving in the mobile devices market? Not yet, but I'm optimistic.
