    I live in the Redmond, WA area (Microsoft headquarters) and I occasionally see people with WPs. When I ask, they undoubtedly work for Microsoft. So, I haven't seen many people with WPs and when I do they seem to all work for Microsoft.

    Having said that, I changed positions within my company recently and noticed a person in my group using a WP. Most professionals I come across have iPhones, which in my personal opinion is primarily for the status of owning a very high-end device and having something extremely simple to use.

    I wanted something that I could easily write apps (for my use), so I went with Android. But.... I really like the WP interface and unique style, so I'm leaning towards switching over to WP8. Anecdotally, I heard that some city and state government groups are switching off Blackberry to WPs, so you might see more of them in the future!

    I've converted four people I work with to WP. I think another two shortly. Other than my convertees, I've met/know five or six other people with WP. I consider that a good sign considering I live in the Bay Area (iPhone zombie town).

    I share a lab with a guy who has a Lumia 520. Really quite a decent bit of kit given the price.

    I've got an LG Optimus 7 (hopefully soon to be replaced by something better). I've seen two other people in the wild with them - one riding the subway in Calgary, and another in LAX. I've never seen anyone with a 920 or similar device.

    I've got several friends with 520s who've let me play around with them (which they find odd since I've literally got a Lumia 1020 in my pocket whilst I do this, but I'm well known to be a tech nerd, so people just roll with it), I'm always impressed with, like you said, how much punch it packs for it's size (well, price rather). Still somewhat sluggish compared to my Lumia 1020, but it still chugs along, and it's very comparable to the two old Lumia 900s I've got sitting in a desk.

    I feel the 520 was Nokia's greatest idea ever. It's just exploded in popularity. It's perfect for people looking for a decent smartphone on a budget, or maybe as like the iPod of the Windows realm (actually, better in some ways, since it's cheaper and you can always dial 911 in a pinch, even without a SIM card). The 520 is a charming little device, and great for getting new smartphone buyers hooked on Windows Phone. The 520, and future iterations of it, will likely hold the key to Windows Phone gaining significant market share.

    Do you know anyone outside of your immediate family who owns a Windows Phone? I have only seen one WP out in the wild and that person traded her Lumia 900 for an Android phone in like a month. Otherwise I have not seen a single person who owned a WP, but apparently there are a few million of them out there. It makes me wonder where these people are who own them. I assume more people here have a WP, so they must exist, right?
    I've made 3 of my colleagues to buy Windows Phone . And, they're really happy about it.

    I agree with you completely. It was a very good move by Nokia. I've heard of people even buying them and a big MicroSD card, and using them as a portable media player. For the price it really can't be beat. I can't imagine Nokia is making a lot of money on them, but perhaps its the gateway drug principle - the first hit is free, and once they are hooked on the ecosystem and hardware, they are much more likely to buy another Lumia device.

    I'd be curious to know your opinions of the difference between the 900s and the 1020.

    They're everywhere around me now :)) In fact, even more than the Android, all I see right now are iPhone and WP (mostly Nokia).

    Seeing a lot more on transit in the Toronto area. Usually smaller phones like 520 or 8S.
