    The Dude, where's my update app? shows the huge amount of 2 devices in my country. I guess it's only a matter of time before I find that other one /s

    :)
    Well....the 2 devices that have that application installed and are broadcasting themselves with it ;)

    The dude where's my update app shows about 105 users in my country. But there's another app called ...I'm a WP7! that shows the actual location of other WP7 uses near you. That's where I see 3 devices :D

    Yah but those apps are always dependent on other people installing them. They can't show you phones if the app isn't installed on them.

    I have yet to see someone with a WP7 device. I'm basically advertising this platform to everyone I know. I feel like lone ranger, but a unique one. ;-) I have the app "I'm a WP7", and I only see 3 in my area, which is weird cause I heard WP was selling well here.

    What did you did? When my car broke down I was taking the bus and browsing some boards and some woman near to me had her eyes locked dead on my phone. Then she move and set next to me.

    I freak out, I though she was gonna mugged me or something. My phone is sometimes and little too sexy.
    Started using everything... from ESPN ScoreCenter to Rowi. I even sent a twitter update from the photo app after sending an update just in case he used another smartphone. I used the back button like a mofo. Show him a little multitasking w/o Mango. He must of been saying "damn... that's a smooth phone". Ha.

    With that app, if you zoom in enough on the map, you can actually see where their house might be. Luckily, most maps misplace my house, so I shouldn't be getting any break-ins for my Arrive... :o)

    Same here, the app isn't accurate enough. Besides, the only other two users with the app are pretty far from me

    Have 15 users within 15 miles of me in Florida, including three in my town. If you use your postal code instead of location, no risk of prowlers.

    No wai!!! I finally saw someone with a WP7 device, in my small town away from the "biggest little city" no less. It was at the little local auction here. She had an LG Quantum, pink on dark theme. I couldn't kinnear her though because my phone died (it lasted a day and a half, so it was definitely my fault :P). Also, I'm pretty sure, if I had, the people behind me would've thought I was a stalker or serial killer and it wouldn't have turned out too well... :ninja:

    Yesterday it was Windows Phone extravaganza at my job, I saw the rare HTC surround and at one point there was a a Quatum owner on the right and a HD7 on my left. also it was the first time I saw a Windows Phone on the wild, another HD7 but that was a dude calling her date.

    If only there where new phones this summer, things would have changed.

    After playing a round of basketball with my friends, I whipped out my Focus to read a text. One of my friends recognized it as a Windows Phone and quickly proceeded to ask "does it lag or crash like on Android?" lol (he'd had an experience with Android before apparently) He said he wanted to buy one when he got the money. I suggested he wait till the holiday season for the better hardware.

    I have seen a few:
    1. at movie theater (a row ahead of me)
    2. at a restaurant
    3. at Starbucks
    4. on FB (uploaded via Windows Phone)
    5. uncle asked me to help him set up email, since he noticed I had a WP7.

    The first 3 I witnessed in Vegas. Would be cool to find out which cities WP7 is most popular at.

    Is pretty hard not to want to keep playing with your phone all the time.

    At the supermarket you will see me holding my WP more than half the time, checking things off my shopping list, and reading an occasional text/email.

    This is a funny one. I had to take my daughter to the Apple store in Salem NH. the place is busy folks playing with all the computers and devices. so of course if took out my HTC HD7 and started flipping around "my own little show I do when I want show off the OS" and of course some people took notice and asked what is that? why it's WP7 ...Huh? I laugh and say it's MS new OS for Mobile... Oh that's it? I heard it sucked.. No wrong here try it... passed to this guy and he was like Oh nice.... then an apple sales guy came over to me and said you know this is an apple store we don't allow advertising other manufacturers products here . I wasn't I was using my device and was asked what it was... I smiled... My daughter said Must you always embarrassed me hahah yes!

    haven't personally seen another WP7 phone out in the wild yet (but i keep looking!). what I am getting tired of though is all the times that people see me using my DVP and are drawn in by the big bright screen and then what is the inevitable first question I am asked? "hey, is that an iPhone?" .... grrrrr....
    That's when you flip out that qwerty keyboard, and say Iphone who? BTW the Dell Venue Pro is probably the sexiest Windows phone available.

    what's funny is that I notice I get a lot of double takes when people see my Focus. when i'm on the bus going to and coming from work, i'll notice quite a few eyes on my baby. today was one... he did the double take and then he just watched. of course i put on an extra show, so he could see how smooth wp7 was.

    lol, you put on an extra show:)

    *pause*

    Heh... Sliding out that keyboard has brought a few conversations to a standstill for me in recent weeks. "What's that? An iPhone?" ... "No, this is a Windows Phone." ... "Oh, well, I need a phone with a keyboard like my <insert name of random 'droid phone here...> because I don't like those onscreen keyboards." ... *flips DVP keyboard out* ... "ooooh..." *begins actually looking at phone screen and features* ...

    ...and suddenly, another mindless drone discovers that WP7 might just be an option worth considering after all.

    The hot girl that works in front of me makes cup cakes, so I asked her for her work email because I had a possible celebration coming out. I flip out one note and I asked her, her email.

    She asked me to type it herself because she has never used a Windows Phone. She has having a little too much fun with the clicky sound the softkeyboard makes. Then we started to have fun leaving messages on the note. Is a pretty cool feature.


    That being say, there's no way in "heck" that she will get a Windows Phone. She is apple to the core.
