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...

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.

This is great news for Windows Phone! And I just want to point out that on my Facebook and Twitter feeds, I've been seeing "for Windows Phone" at lot more recently. ;-)

i hate why the first update of WP8 is only available for HTC 8X even though none of these WP are costumize!!

microsoft really want to push people on HTC... coz they dont want nokia to be the only choice...pathetic for MSFT!

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
