Windows Store Download Stats.
So after a very flat and uninspiring period after the launch of Windows 8 looking at my own stats today it is clear that things have started to change over the last Month or so – with a steep increase in downloads (which now total in excess of 37,000)
Hopefully this increase will continue a pace over the coming year.
Interestingly a similar graph for my Windows Phone Apps shows a much steadier increase over the same period:
Windows 8 Hardware
At the weekend I had the fortune to visit the ‘gadget show live’ event in Birmingham and was particularly impressed with the variety and quality of the Windows 8 devices that were on display (I particularly liked this Sony device that was equally usable in a tablet and laptop/desktop configuration and powerful enough for almost any scenario)
It was nice to be able to get hands on with all these devices in one place. (It did make me think that our PC retailers are not doing as effective a job as they might).
