Are we ever going to be able to see name tags above the player in Pocket Edition?

Amazing milestone Minecraft, let's see if you can get 10 million sales before the end of Chinese new year. I know it's a tough feat but let's see if they can do it. ;)

Also, finally armor and 6 slabs in the PE. And I'm pretty surprised that upside down/corner stairs and upside down slabs will be implemented very quickly into the PE.

Well, the PE will probably out-sell the PC version because people use smart phones a lot nowadays. Not to mention it's cheaper, and there's a demo. Ooh, another thing, it's only, like, 7mb.
For now.

PE is spreading faster than PC :P Only 2.8 million sales more, and we are more than PC!

What about XBE?

Personally, I doubt it; the pocket edition is fairly limited when compared to the PC version, not just in features (which they'll doubtless add more of) but in terms of how much it can be modified.

9 million sales? Notch must be one pretty rich guy
People were saying minecraft was going to shut down because of the lack of money to make updates. Who makes up those rumors?

Doing a little quick math, assuming in every sale Notch got 20 American dollars (Using 20 instead of the current price to give a more accurate number since the game was considerably cheaper in Alpha and Beta before it was fully released.) 9,000,000 times 20 = 180,000,000. Which is 180 MILLION dollars. Even if you cut that number in half for all his expenses, taxes, and margin of error assuming that a $20 average per sell made the total a little high, then Notch is still walking around with 90 million dollars and is still one DANG rich man. Plus that's not even counting the sales of the pocket edition or xbox edition.

All I can say is I have a lot of respect for Notch turning an idea for a game as simple as mining and crafting into a success. Then all the respect for the people at Mojang who took Minecraft and turned it into the multi-million dollar game that it is today. In my humble opinion, the world is just a little bit better because of Minecraft. Thanks Notch and congratulations on 9 million.
