    My phone doesn't use a windowing UI environment. They should dump the name Windows Phone. It's seriously putting people off by association.

    Nope. I suspect I heard one once in a grocery store but that's it.

    3, one random colleague at work with 800, and two converted friends, one of them has my previous 800, the other one just recently bought yellow 920, still suffering from the Android-withdrawal though ^_^

    I seen a best buy employee with one today, a white 920 but honestly I never see any out there and that's not good.

    I think BB10 is gonna pull through and take that third spot.

    I've been told my BlackBerry Curve 8520 is better than my HTC TITAN (and heck, if she saw my Nokia Lumia 920, she would say the BB8520 is still better), just because the latter runs Windows and the former doesn't. She also said her HTC Wildfire was better than the HTC TITAN, again because the TITAN runs Windows, the Wildfire doesn't... I'm like "Seriously, you're saying your old budget phone and my old budget phone both run better and have better specs than my new FLAGSHIP device..." And despite the phone running smooth as anything (thus debunking the running better argument), she still insisted that her Wildfire was better, just because it wasn't a Windows Phone. I gave up at this point, because I really wanted to punch the university building down in frustration...
    Just who is breeding with what? Where do they come from? I suspect that General Zod was not the only person to be cast out from a home planet and then to land on Earth. Seems to me that some far off planet was kicking out some scum and they landed here.

    My last phone was the HTC Desire, and it wiped the floor with my friend's Wildfire. I kept my Desire and use it to listen to podcasts in bed. Let me tell you, it is painfully slow compared to my 920. Wildfire owners therefore need to keep schtum, and shut their cake holes. They do not have the high ground. As for BB owners, if ever I need a ship building in a bottle I will ask to borrow their tiny hands. Seriously, those tiny keys might be fine in Lilliput, but not in my town, not in my hands. Look in the Guinness book of records for the guy that can write the Lord's prayer on a grain of rice. I reckon even he would squint to try and read a Word document on a BB screen.

    I'm still on a contract with TELUS here in Canada. My wife and I have HTC Desire phones. I rooted mine as soon as I realized HTC and TELUS were not going to support it past Android 2.3 just to get an updated OS. After multiple ROMs I stopped and asked myself, "Why in the world am I hacking this phone just to get it to stop force closing apps and crashing Facebook?" That's when a good friend of mine introduced me to Windows Phone. I had heard a number of horror stories in the Windows Mobile days with Qualcomm's phone so when my contract was up for renewal, I didn't give Windows Phone 7 a chance. I wish I had back then. Luckily, my buddy had a spare LG Quantum (C900-B) that he unlocked for me to try. It's a 2 year old phone, same vintage as my HTC Desire and it recently was updated to Windows 7.8. Although Microsoft has had some issues with support their own products in the past, its nice to see them do something right for once.

    I've been using it for the past year and a half and I love it. My wife wants a Windows 8 Phone when our contract is up at the end of the year or earlier if she doesn't run over the phone with her van first.

    Mother in law (shudder) just flew into town toting a 822. She used to have a POS mid-range Android and she's in love with WP.

    my job in the city ive seen about 15 in the wild. most of them were actually 8x's limelight green, and california blue, and fire red, if i remember correctly, 3 blue 8x, 3 black lumia 920, 3 yellow 8x, and 3 red 8x. i didnt get a good look at the people so i may have just been seeing the same phones over, but still its good to see color coming into the work world.

    I live in San Francisco and I am the only person I know who has a Windows Phone (lumia 900). My co-workers and friends all talk about how much they like the design, both UI and the product itself, but would probably never switch from an iPhone. As far as just seeing a Windows Phone out in the wild, I've seen about 2 or 3 people with them and I saw a guy who had a Surface + Lumia 920 set up in Chipotle. I'm surprised I don't see many WPs in a city such as SF.

    This guy I worked with has the Lumia 900. My coworker had the HTC Trophy and and a guy that worked in a dental school had the HTC Surround. I always ask people how they heard about Windows Phone and usually I'm the one who knows the most about the OS.

    I know one person, who just got an WP8 like a month ago. Ive seen a few WP7 around in school, but I honestly get joked on saying I'm the only one who has a WP8 and a surface in the tri state area. (PA, DE, NJ)

    Quite a few of you folks at WP Central keep forgetting that BB phones were never in 4th place.

    Depends how you measure:

    By current install base of all BBRY and MSFT devices, then yes, BBRY was always 3rd.

    By current install base of only BB10 and WP devices, then no, BB is 4th.

    By monthly sales numbers of new devices, then no, BB is 4th.
