    One guy I work with has one. That's out of about 30 people. I've never seen one elsewhere. I'm in Canada.

    I've seen about 10 people in the last 3 months with WP in my city, so there's something. The majority still have iPhones and Galaxy S2/3s, but hey, it's a start.

    I have a L820. My gf a 520. My dad a 900. My mom looks enticed by a 625. Also converted a friend with a 720 and another one with an 8X.

    At work I saw a girl with a red Lumia. I think it might have been a 1520 but I'm not sure. It was sticking out of her back pocket. It was like halfway out of her back pocket so I think it was the 1520!

    Plus one day a guy came to fix our computers and I heard the windows phone text message sound come from him. I was surprised. A majority of the people I work with have iPhones and a couple with galaxies.

    My ex has a 920, mother has a 710, my father a 521, brother an HD7, friend and his sister a 521, and a manager from work has an 8x. I see Windows Phones quite a lot in my city, but obviously not as much as iOS or Android devices. Sorry if improper punctuation by the way with all the commas.

    Well.. Let me first say.. That i know hell lot of people who have made the #Switch..
    It all started a few years ago when Nokia released the ever wonder Nokia N9.. My friend was bonkers over this as he at that moment was using a N800.. Another masterpiece.. I was using a Samsung star (java phones.. With something called midship 2.0.. I could get games and the phone became bareable.. Then again it was the cheapest touch screen phone that just released).. Im going outta topic.. So ya.. The N9's beauty and the Symbian masterpiece was something we wanted but couldn't get a piece.. Then we came across the WP 7.. That too was spectacular.. Luckily for me.. The Samsung Star (used almost 2 years) finally gave in and never even came back on.. (the last 4 months only half the screen worked.. But yea I'm a rough user),.
    So when my phone died out,. I had an option of getting a new phone.. Feasted my eyes on Windows Phone (was a bit worried because I did own an HTC which ran Windows Mobile, and that wasn't my cup of tea)
    The Nokia Lumia 800 stole my breath.. The colours, the easeness, fluidity, the CBD.. And yes the curves from N9.. Even still I wanted an android (most ppl had it.. And i was really good at using it and never failled me) But the WP7 with all it s fb integration and live tile.. Everything actually made it so easy for me that i never bothered to open the apps..
    But price issues I settles for the Nokia Lumia 710.. Other than shape and the memory size (8gb) it wasn't much different.. It worked amazing.. I had no regrets.. And soon gave up using all the android phones lying around.. Not going into detail here.. cos pretty much even more better reviews have been put up..

    Presently I've upgraded to Nokia Lumia 920.. Mainly because the WP7 upgraded to WP7.5 and then to WP7.8.. and was the last.. Needed to get my hands on the WP8.. Got my eyes on the Lumia 1520 too.. Since me buying a WP phone.. My friends seeing how well it is, made the #Switch.. I know 3 HTC 8s.. One HTC 8x.. One Nokia Lumia 610.. My Nokia Lumia 710.. Two Nokia Lumia 800.. Sadly no one who has a 900... But 6 People who bought the Nokia Lumia 920 (incl. Me) and one who bought a Nokia Lumia 520.. Two who bought the Nokia Lumia 620.. My cousin who bought the Lumia 720.. And neighbour who bought the Lumia 625.. Another close friend who bought the nokia Lumia 925 and a Lumia 620.. These are just my closest peeps.. Not kidding.. Here all i see is WP..

    I realized today that even the black Windows Phones are SO easy to spot from a distance. I saw a fellow student with a black 928. All I had to do was take a sweeping glance, saw the elongated flash in the middle of the phone, and I knew it was a Lumia. Man, something about their design . . .

    FINALLY, have seen one truely in the wild (someone I don't know). That means I've seen a whopping two non-relatives with WPs over the past almost 3 years.

    Yep. Three girls and two guys in the company I'm working are using WP (two 920, one 820, 720 and 520). There should be another guy or girl because I once saw a 925 but didn't see the owner. And another girl used to own a WP7 phone but lost it, making her feel so sad. And I have a 620 (for office use) and a 1020 (for myself). Almost got the whole WP8 Lumia family reunited. Yay!
    Actually... I saw Lumia phones EVERYDAY in the subway. I'm in Shanghai, China. You can imagine how easy (and exciting) it is when recognizing a Lumia phone with its typical bright color.

    I've had 3 friends with them, one bought out because she doesn't know much about phones and now regrets it, my other two friends bought for Xbox compatibility and still can't wait to get rid of them once there contacts are up.

    That's hard to believe. All the people that I've introduced to WP8, like it and sticking with it. Aren't you supposed to be at Android Central?

    Well, I have a 1520 myself (upgraded from a Focus). I converted my wife from iPhone to Lumia 1520. She actually made the mistake of going to a Galaxy Note first, which completely screwed up her contacts. After 3 hours of frustration attempting to reorganize her contacts we went to the AT&T store. Got her the 1520, and within 5 minutes I had all 1500 of her contacts organized and arranged.

    As for out in the wild I have two coworkers who are longtime WP users. And I just converted two who saw my 1520. My wife has two guys from her IT department who saw her 1520 and both came to work the following day with 1520's.

    I've seen the occasional WP here or there. The base is definitely growing.

    I own a yellow 820, and I know around 4-5 persons with WP8 device and 2-3 with WP7. I see a lot of people in the streets, buses, subway with Windows Phones. Mostly with yellow 920's, red/yellow 520's or HTC 8s. Personally I get a lot of attention with my Lumia, and even more after I switched to yellow matt wireless charging shell (previously I had a black shiny one without Wireless Charging support) My mates often ask me questions about Windows Phone and they are amazed with image quality :)

    Personally, I own a 8X and a 920. There are two other coworkers at the job with 8Xs (one likes hers for the most part, the other is "meh" about it), they got theirs independently from my feedback. One of my dear friends owns a Ativ S, we got his dad a 920, and I just bought my dad a 925 from t-mobile.

    Me and my tree roommates all have Lumia's (obviously thanks to my personal marketing skills :P) I so it's 3x 920 and 1x 520, but where I work and when we do business meeting in London, Windows Phone has become 3rd visible system replacing Blackberry already and also in general I think that London in the city with highest number of WP in the world, you can see them everywhere on the street and all the carrie shop always advertise them really well. I bet 8.1 will skyrocket this system easily.
