An interesting set of numbers Microsoft revealed on Friday in lieu of Windows Phone growth. The company says that it has seen over a 100 percent increase in app downloads and about 140 percent increase in paid app revenue from October till now i.e. the time when Microsoft debut Windows 8 till today.

Naturally, the company trying to put in every possible effort to make its mobile operating system a hit, even on sharing that Nokia’s Lumia 720 and 520/521 phones have just begun to ship across the globe, allowing potential Windows Phone customers an additional choices to select from. No doubt ever since Microsoft – Nokia partnership comes in picture, both being coping up to make big.

Closing by adding some more stats, the company added that it has also now enabled developer payout in six new markets via Dev Center bringing the total markets supporting developer payout to 122, allowing developers in these markets to submit both free and paid apps to the Windows Phone store.

Well, interestingly, just in sharing only a one set of numbers can’t define at a moment that how good or bad the Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 actually playing its pace. Unless and until, the company comes forward and share every insight, sharing every actual numbers officially, only then it makes sense. Sharing one or two numbers are good, but not enough to make its stand in the market when there are already some major players making huge waves in the market.
