Windows Phone 8 sales likely to have a very merry Christmas, Facebook app usage indicates

0. phoneArena 10 Dec 2012, 06:25 posted on

Not that it is a tall order to beat the WP7 market share numbers, but, if mobile Facebook logins are any indication, Windows Phone 8 is doing much better this year...

IDK if it's only me but I always smell something fishy about indirect "data" hinting WP "robust" sales.

This has something to do with those guys Ballmer and Elop I guess.

Have you joined #AndroidRage campaign?

Wp8 is okay ChaoticRazar, but why let down buy last years specs and even apps are taking 3 months to reach Wp8 , while OS and iOS receive them very quickly? Who do we, who to blame? Look at there games they don't even have all the games that are vaiable on OS and iOS, why choose the 3rd best when iOS and OS are leading?
Okay smooth transitions, that's all WP8 is only good for!

ok first it took android years to be where it is now for apps, behind iOS getting them mostly after. wp8 will be there too in time so you cant say anything on that. your precious android at the start was a mess. wp8 has got off to a stronger start. the app selection will grow you cant hold that as an advantage as it took android and say it with me 'years' to get where it is. also i love how you contradict yourselves like classic trolls do, there was an article on here about the amount of apps not been important and you all agreed then your back to trying to use it as a reason not to go for wp8.

also and im sick of saying this, whats the best for one may be a nightmare for others, why cant you get into your tiny mind that people have personal preferences and dont want to follow the new arrogant crowd of android users. you should research personal preferences as you clearly no idea what it is. your just a follower.

so please as ive said before your hate is pathetic and you are as well. people are liking wp8 and even switching. they unlike you can choose for themselves what they like not be stuck to must get android

come back to reality you troll

chaotic you're the man. Some people just don't get it. They assume
- WP never changed since the launch.
- Only fastest hardware brings smoothness. Mamory management and software optimization is of zero value.
- WP was crappy and always will be.
- Every other person except me is a dimwit.

if you need a phone to play games I think its better to chose iphone.... but if you need it for work and don't know any reason to use ios over wp, for me. iphone or ipad its for play. I went to my sister party yesterday. all the kits happy with their ipads, everybody who need a worktool using bb or android, some one ask me how much a have to pay for the office in wp lol

I believe and think there only doing good for few months, wait till New-year sales will decline?
WP8 is just another iOS immatate, with same features and " Lock-Down" its a new oS, people will try, but I think they will regret after buying, and might migrate back to iOS or OS....?

why are you trolling again? seriously kid get help your pathetic

difference been that wp8 devices dont need quadcore to run smoother then android, symbian was lighter then android and thats says it all

Really, what a joke. Didn't WP have 8 years to revolutionize? Look at W1234567, and now 8, what progress did they make? It took OS just 2 years to become a full Linux running just behind WEB OS on 3.0.3?

I don't see how will this translate into increased market share for WP compared to the same period last year.
In fact it will continue to shrink since both Android and iOS will grow much more than WP did. Android will have ~ 55 million increase in quarterly sales y-o-y.
That is almost ten times bigger growth than Microsoft hopes to achieve with their platform.

What makes me laugh the most is that I come here to hear the latest news about WP8 simply because I am a fan and like WP8. So what the hell is it when iOS and Android fans have to come to a WP8 review post and leave hate or anti Microsoft comments??? You guys are either delusional and came to the wrong review page or you secretly like WP8 and have to come here ranting because your so jealous of your laggy, glitchy, leaky Android platform you got nothing else better to do! All you anti Microsoft/Windows Phone haters go here... androidforums.com/htc-one-v/600154-android-crap.ht​ml
