“Windows Phone is a rapidly growing market where indie developers can be successful. We are looking forward to an even better second year as indie game developers, and can’t wait for Windows 8!” Great to see success stories like this. Since I run my own one-man business as well, I somehow feel kinship.
Taptitude: a Windows Phone success story

Windows Phone is not rapidly growing in my definition of the term. Sure, it grew 50% in a month, but when you have no market share it doesn’t take many sales to give you that. They are so small a part of the market that Nielson doesn’t even track them separately. Windows is lumped in with the “Others” category. For indie devs to be successful, you need users. At this point there just aren’t any.
