    I follow a lot of celebrities, sportsmen, journalists on Twitter. I always notice which Twitter client they are using. A vast majority of them use Twitter for iPhone, Echofon, and a lot of them also use Twitter for Blackberry. Surprisingly, given Android's marketshare, not too many seem to use Android devices.

    However, I am yet to see a famous person using Windows Phone devices. All Windows Phone users seem to be either Microsoft enthusiasts, geeky people, or teenage girls. Do you know of any well-known people who uses Windows Phone?

    Do fictional famous people count? Richard Castle of "Castle" uses a WP7, last I saw.

    OK, I didn't know about that show. I'm guessing that's some sort of product placement? If so, then good job from Microsoft.

    Right! But he is both a "Microsoft enthusiast" and "geeky people"! He doesn't count :P

    I saw "Bones" using WP7 phone in a recent episode. That's the only time I've seen on in the wild.

    Nope, Gus' phone was in the dead guys pocket. He needs to get Shawn to ditch his iPhone now.

    Ryan Seacrest uses one. I follow a couple of WP7 related stuff on Twitter and saw that Ryan Seacrest retweeted something from Windowsphones. I believe I saw or read something about Dane Cook using a WP7 as well.

    I LOVE that show however they have iPhones all over that set. Castles partner used to rock a Palm Pre Plus now shes totting an iPhone. I forgive them for this because that show makes up for it in humor and fun.

    I think there's a difference between product placement and celebrities using WP7 in their personal lives. Say what you will about BlackBerry (and there's PLENTY to say!), they have a wide following in the rich and famous set. They have a weekly roundup of "Celebrity BlackBerry Sightings" that do not generally include product placement at APCentral's sister site, Crackberry.com.

    wasn't there a lady(can't remember her name) that had WP7 in her MTV earlier this year? and I believe she praised it too, oh and I believe there was a sports(football I think) star that was using it... and again I can't remember his name... me and celebrity names don't mix very well...

    Probably an unrelased Sammy device :D



    j/k, j/k, I don't think anyone knows, because at that point, he probably doesn't even want to be contacted or have to use a dinky smartphone, lol.

    I somehow doubt Bill Gates uses a BB.

    Steve Jobs used an iPhone, I'm sure Bill Gates uses a WP7

    Image info from a TwitPic by @BillGates shortly after WP7 was released revealed the device to be Samsung SGH-I917, which would be a Focus. Of course, that was a year ago.
