Adding another 100,000 WP7 Facebook users hints to roughly 8-9 million Windows Phones out there
As much as we’d all love to hear concrete figures that provide some insight to the amount of Windows Phones sold thus far, we sometimes have to rely on other indirect sources to gain that knowledge.

Although it’s not the actual tally of Windows Phones sold since its inception, we can kind of infer the amount by simply taking a peek at the amount of active Windows Phone Facebook users that are out there. From the looks of it all, there’s some progress made in the effort for Microsoft’s pride and joy platform.

Adding yet another 1.3 million users to its tally, that figure brings the total amount of active Windows Phone Facebook users to somewhere around 8 to 9 million – according to the recorded figures and graph provided. Naturally, the trend seems to be on a positive note for Windows Phone as a whole, since it has continued to increase as far back as November of 2010 when the numbers were first recorded.

So yeah, 8 to 9 million active Windows Phones out there might not seem like a whole lot in the greater scheme of things, but as long as that trend continues its upward route, you know that the platform will be able to survive in this cutthroat landscape.
