You know the platform is making it when companies are hiring dedicated developers to make apps for your OS.
This seems to be the case in India, with Flipkart looking for a Windows “mobile” Application Engineer, presumably to develop a Windows Phone app for their ecommerce service.
Hiring a permanent full-time developer also suggests we can expect this app to be regularly updated and stay up to date with their iOS and Android apps.
Windows Phone has around 5% market share in India, but hopefully the arrival of handsets from a variety of local low-cost OEMs like Lava will mean this number will be heading up soon.

Thanks Vishal for the tip.
