Kik Interactive CEO, Ted Livingston, concludes:

“Windows Phone users may be a small segment of the whole, but they bring with them all their friends on other mobile platforms, creating a huge andunanticipated spike in Kik activity.

It’s time for cross-platform apps to start paying attention to Windows Phone 7.”

Obviously this bodes well for Windows Phone. Things like this cause companies to take notice.
