Great to see WP doing so great, and considering the fact that WP8 still hasn't been launched, this sounds even greater. Finally, some REAL competition for Android.

So far, the needle is pointing up for WP. The November launch of WP 8 will be improttant to show some excitment out of the gate (especially for Nokia for obvious reasons). But that launch and the sales this Nov/Dec are not as important as the growth in 2013, so stories like this are good.

It's just natural that WP will continue to grow. Personally I'm a mac user, but just switched to a WP. There are more PC user than mac user. It's a natural progression after W8 launch to transit to WP8, especially when it will be enterprise ready.

Not sure why all the doom and gloom from tech news. And now they are starting to change their tune... Godspeed!
