What nonsense - you are missing one very important point. PEOPLE DON'T WANT MSFT ON THEIR PHONES! Consumers have already made this quite clear. They are tired of all the crap from MSFT that they have put up with over the years and there is absolutely NO compelling reason to do so when they have much better choices available to them in iOS and Android.MSFT is an old stoggy and extremely flawed company. Big fail in smart phones. (Oxymoron - windows smart phones).
Well said. People are leaving windoze in droves, this is reflected in very strong Mac sales year after year, while windoze (aka pc) sales are minimal at best.
People have we forgotten why we we left the wonderful windoze world and switched to Apple ?
Most people are not stupid, they learn and now understand that time is money too.
This is reflected on windows 7 series mobile phone (now shortened considerably to wp7 lol !), rather poor sales to date. Where is the evidence that this will change in the foreseeable future ?
Nokia/microshit partnership will relegate Nokia as simply the manufacturer of handsets, if Nokia thinks they have a say in this, they will be soon disappointed. So Nokia becomes another dell, and we know where that led to.
Ballmer has wet dreams that all of Nokia's customers will flock to wp7, no chance. Most will go android, rim or iOS.
