And this is only for Nokia !


That could be the number that have shipped into the channel vs. the number in the hands of the end-users.

I have seen a total of 1 Windows Phone device in the hands of a user, ever. This was a consultant for a Microsoft Business Partner. Yes, this is not a scientific study but I am just not seeing these phones in peoples hands.

Well it seems that it is official. Quite a surprise.

Waze is recruiting beta testers: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=47821

I wonder if people who have an SD-card in their phone can just download the file and install Waze manually.

I've got a Lumia 920 today, but that doesn't have an SD-card anyway, so I guess I have to wait and see if I get accepted as a beta tester. (Or if there will be a release very, very soon.)

Also, I wonder how that permission thing works. I mean, I don't think Waze knows my Microsoft account, Live-ID, IMEI... so how can they possibly give me whatever kind of permission it takes to install the app from windowsphone.com?

Damn, I'm just 399 points away from the highest level... I need Waze for WP8 to get that frickin crown!

Thanks. Damn, I don't know which address I used when I registered on centercode, and all I currently see when I log in is a text that thanks me for my application and tells me I'll get a mail after it's reviewed.

Well, I guess I'll have to live without Waze and wait until I hear something or until there will be a public beta or release version for WP8.

I too doubt Waze will consider developing for WP8 until the market share is higher. Tough to warrant throwing money at a tiny market. That being said, I really hope a Waze client is developed soon! It is one of the few things I miss on my Lumia 920 from my old iPhone, though not enough to switch back. The tethering is one option, but carting two phones and enabling the tethering every time I drive is just too much extra hassle. Oh well, Nokia Drive is just as good at navigating but I miss reporting traffic!

I upgraded to the Nokia Lumia 920 also. Great phone.

If Waze isn't going to support WP8 I may switch over to the Garmin app or Nokia Drive.

* Edit *

I just tried Garmin StreetPilot and it's rather terrible. They do have the more expensive version but I'm not sure about paying that price on unknown quality.

It looks like Nokia Drive is the only descent nav app on WP8 but it falls short.

Was unsure whether to start a new thread, or add here.
Just want to add another request/plea for Waze on WP8. About to switch from iPhone 4 to Lumia 920 and this is also one of my big ones. I figure the more of us post, the more we show a rice interest which will hopefully get the ball rolling faster. I've used Nokia Drive and it's ok for very basic Nav, but it's not intuitive and it lacks the lie traffic etc that we've all grown accustomed to with Waze

Please Waze team - WP8? Give us an official update?? Throw us a bone?? Is this a non-starter or something that is being actively pursued?
