    I've actually seen quite a few 800's in the wild in the last week, in fact I would say I've seen more people with 800's in the last week than all the other WP7s since it released.

    Gigantic display.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Not sure about the resolution - looks OK from a distance I suppose.

    Ha, that's cool. Where was the projector? Across the river?

    Before the phone appeared, it had nothing to do phones. Still, it attracts attention to the product.

    Those must be ridiculously high powered projectors.
    Joel gets to do so many amazing things these days but he probably doesn't have a Lumia 800 because he lives in Ontario.

    I was in London over the weekend visting family.

    On the train on the way south (and back up north), on the tub, and around London itself I couldn't stop seeing people using iPhones (not just counting myself), even on the train I was surrounded by no less than six people, all with iPhones plainly visible - I only saw a tiny number of Blackberry and Android devices (although I know they have a larger market-share) and not a single Windows Phone.

    Given people don't tend to replace phones after owning them at least 18 to 24 months, and once you've bought into the Apple ecosystem you're unlikely to leave, I think Microsoft is stuck, with no way to win. The best they can do is present themselves as a "premium" alternative to Android and Blackberry - maybe Microsoft should allow users to license Windows Phone directly and allow them to install it on their Android devices?

    @W3bbo, are you saying that Apple is the unbeatable juggernaut? Cuz Android came out after, and is inferior technically, but does have a bigger marketshare

    to prove that WP is gaining in popularity... I've just received a first email that ended with "Sent from my Windows Phone"

    I've seen quite a lot of Windows Phones on campus. In fact, three people I know bought them recently.  Sure, most people I see do have iPhones and Android devices, but at the same time, at least one person in every course I've been in so far has had a Windows Phone.

    It's picking up some momentum (better than none) here.

    Also, a lot of my friends who are HCI majors absolutely love the UI and will probably get one when their iPhone contracts expire.
