Adding another 100,000 WP7 Facebook users hints to roughly 8-9 million Windows Phones out there

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.

Great to know that the graph is going up LOL! When I bought my WP7 device a month ago, I thought I was the only one so I'm glad I have company LOL! I have no regrets, none at all, buying the phone. I love my WP7 as much as I love my Android!

Doesn't Android add that many users about every minute?

Huh... That is funny. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like it, even if they prefer another OS. I also.know 2 Verizon customers who are happily waiting to see if WP comes their way this Summer as they love my wife's Titan and my "S". Just imagine how these numbers would improve if there is a LTE Nokia and HTC on Big Red running Apollo.....

Verizon is definitely a big player, and you can't get to the top in the U.S. without going through them at some point. However, maybe WP is better off going through AT&T first, just like the iPhone did. They can use AT&T to generate enough interest to make Verizon users demand it from their carrier. If they can do that, it could potentially create more buzz and more demand.

Apple went through ATT, Android went through VZW. Either way you can be a big player. The problem with ATT is that they are still very dependantly tied to the iphone. I think it would stand a better chance of fair advertising and store placement at VZW. I can tell you that its starting to pick up at Tmobile already from word of mouth and from what little ads there are. We used to sell like 1 a month if we were lucky, now we sell a handful a week. I wouldnt be surprised to see the 710 take a top 3 spot for january.

Windows will be the "New" phone to upgrade too.. once WP starts showing real momentum, regular apps and "advertised" apps for things like Chevy, your local bank, etc.. will be ported to WP too.. and then WP will start to really gain market share.
