So? Does that mean that sales are not increasing?

Oh certainly, sales are increasing. I just object to people trotting out the same tired and twisted stats like it matters. WebOS had two amazing quarters of growth, but that particular statistic is meaningless. It's total devices that matters, and Windows Phone 8 doesn't matter.

The fact that Microsoft is keeping up with the market

But they're not. WP8 market share is lower than WP7 market share was. It remains to be seen if they'll ever regain the heady heights of the 3-4% market share the had back then.

Do you have evidence to support that every single app developer who's seen a dramatic increase in sales started at zero?

They all did. No one was selling Windows Phone 8 apps until Windows Phone 8 launched. Again, a "dramatic increase" is a meaningless statistic. Actual, hard figures.

There's no evidence that there is any more real, consumer driven momentum behind WP8 than any of their previous mobile platforms

There's no evidence..if you conveniently ignore the evidence like you have.
Where is it then? Windows Phone 8 hasn't even been out long enough to show up on any market research; what's there is dumped under "Other" along with Meego and WebOS. You have no evidence of anything related to WP8 because the data simply doesn't exist yet.
