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.
In my friends "zone" and "work" zone, some of iPhone addicts migrated with me to Windows Phone.
YES, the number may be low for the moment, but as most of them were "Apple addict" previously, I hope it'll rock for this great (IMHO) product.

But I understand "you", ie Waze, if you don't want to migrate to WP7/8 ... but I hope you'll ;)

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 don't think waze wants to use the metro (windows 8) design.

Besides, I don't think all apps are standard compatible with all windows 8 versions?
WP8, Windows RT, windows x64


The way things are heading, other than size there will be no distinction between laptop, desktop, and phone.

Windows 8 "metro" apps are cross compatible between WP8, RT, and x86 and x64 versions. The API is the same, the only changes that need to be made are to accommodate screen usage, and from what I've seen most of the devs get it right the first time and most apps work equally as good on WP8 as they do on my x64 work desktop and my Surface RT tablet. There are even rumors that the next Xbox will be using the same APIs so you could say download Cut The Rope on your desktop, phone, and Xbox, but I really can't see how Waze would be used on that one though.
