Re: It's not a feeder for Windows Phone
I see them every day on the tube.
Moreover, I was at an expo this weekend gone, demoing a new game that I'm hoping to launch in the summer. Anyway, I got chatting to a couple of would-be indie devs, and told them that while the demo was on a PC, the target platform would be mobile devices. And since I'd been working with the general public all day, I said "iPhones, Androids and so on".
Said devs promptly pulled out Windows Phones and said "What about these?"
Seconds later, as I was explaining to them that Windows Phone is our first-choice mobile platform to develop for, one of the exhibition organisers wandered by, saw what we were chatting about and joined in - another WinPhone.
We also got interviewed by a Youtube games channel, using a high-end Lumia as their camera.
Yes, this was just a few people from the hundreds who were at the expo. But the point is, Windows Phones are out there, and growing in number. All the Google apologists and knee-jerk "because it's Microsoft" crew - get over yourselves.
