Extracted from data from Adduplex, there may have been as much as 50 million WP users in the world by the end of 2013. It’s a relatively big number for WP. That might be Nokia’s old smartphone numbers in a couple of quarters (and a fraction of Android/iOS) but nothing to scoff at. Definitely a big enough market now for developers to consider. BlackBerry have been rather proud of their 70 odd million users (most on the old BB OS). Adduplex estimates around 38 million being WP8. 12M being WP7. Most, being pretty much Nokia.

Adduplex and Paul Thurott explain that, as Belfiore mentioned, despite the lower lumia sales than the previous quarter, WP activations have apparently been consistent.

 in his own blog post,AdDuplex’s Alan Mendelevich provided the same theory I did above to explain how Nokia’s sales numbers and Windows Phone activations are in fact perfectly consistent. And he has usage data to back that up
