    Three guys on my shift at work have them. The younger fellow who started recently has a Lumia 521, the other two are my age, one has a white Lumia 900 and the other has a black 920. I myself: Ativ S Neo.
    We know we're the only fellas with Windows Phones and jokingly call ourselves "The Brotherhood"

    I know one colleague with an 8x, I have a Nokia 1020. I'm in Texas and all you see are mostly iPhones and some Androids. (I got my Nokia because I was tired of seeing every 10 year old with an iPhone.) But I do know that Windows is gaining ground at work. Especially when companies go to W8, I think more business users will switch. Email is so much better on it.

    Not strange at all. I've been a loyal and loving BB customer for several years myself and I'm a recent convert. One, alot of us (read "BlackBerry faithfuls") might be giving in to the agitation or worry of BlackBerry ending its handset division.

    Two, it seems from my time at CrackBerry that in the event of BlackBerry's handset demise should things continue in a steady decline post Z30, Windows Phone is the popular choice/alternative. Reasons vary, I think some consider WP to be a little more reliable or professional than Android or iOS, maybe some like the easy MS protocol integration and so on, who knows. Either way, if you dig around their forums, WP seems to garner more preference, so nah, seeing BB converts, not too strange :)

    I have several coworkers who have picked up WP8 devices: the L920 in white and red specifically. Plus more and more customers I see come through, are sporting WP8 devices. Among them, I see quite a few HTC WP8X . . . of course those things are easy to spot a mile off. I will give HTC props on one thing, they certainly do know how to design a gorgeous phone that sticks out in a crowd. They may have copied some ideas from Nokia with the colors and the polycarb and all that, but HTC's implementation of said ideas, just makes the all-polycarb Lumias look clunky and ugly by comparison. Thank goodness Nokia made the L925 (my current phone) with aluminum trim, of all the Lumias, I like the look of the L925 the most. Hope Nokia/Microsoft does likewise with the T-Mobile variant of the L1020. Anyway, gonna be a sad day when (by necessity) HTC finally calls it quits on Windows Phone. I love the gorgeous design and transitioning colors of the entire 8X, 8S, 8XT line, and I even love what they did with the One. If only they could compete against Nokia on a software level (give people a reason to be excited about a HTC Windows Phone), they may have actually stood a chance on Windows Phone . . . well that, and produce a line of phones aimed at every price level, and not just the higher end.

    A guy who works in my office just got an Android smartphone. It looked old, so I asked him about it. Apparently his friend just got a "huge Windows Phone" and gave the old Android away.

    Edit: And I just met a guy at my bus stop with one of the entry level Lumias, the 520 I think.

    My wife and I both have a Lumia 521. A friend of mine has a Lumia 521. Another friend has a Lumia 520. And a cousin of my wifes has a friend with an HTC 8s. Targeting the low end is definitely helping Windows phone market share.

    I noticed one of my classmates had a WP (I think it was a Samsung WP7 device) so I asked him about it. He was like "Yeah, I prefer Windows to iOS". At that moment I requested the highest of fives.

    I've also seen a few other WPs around campus. I know I saw one guy with a Lumia 520 walking in front of me one time.

    I have a 1020, my partner has a HTC 8X. His boss has a 928. At his IT firm they took a poll for the BYOD policy and 40% are using WP8. And they just announced Surface Pro 2 will be the only supported tablet by 2014. Love it!

    I was in a birthday party few days back, and I saw a lady using her 820 to take some snaps.
    I was really happy to see someone using a Windows Phone.

    Still only know one person... even after I talk up WP to people. The belief that there's either iPhone or Android, and nothing else, is just too ingrained...

    I wish there were more WP users so I could actually find accessories in stores like Walmart, etc. Even Best Buy doesn't carry cases for a lot of the WPs THEY SELL!

    Just before I bought my first WP, I found out my cousin had a 710. He later upgraded to an 8X. I have classmates with an 822 and a 928. I've actually seen quite a few out and about.

    My friend had a 920, but her contracted ended recently and she wanted something different so got a htc one boo

    So annoying cos could have used the rooms feature 😢, she liked wp but there she didn't want the 1020 and the 925 was basically the same, she never fully explored her phone though i show her stuff on my 1020 and im like your phone done that, yours had that etc lol,
