PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft has killed the Kin after only six weeks on the market. The first Windows Phone 7-ish phone apparently didn't sell, likely thanks to its too-high-for-the-demographic $30 data fee from Verizon.

Microsoft have zero ideas how to actually succeed in the mobile space. They seem determined to repeat Apple's mistakes, like being locked to a specific carrier or having their phones require a specific plan. Earth to Microsoft: That only worked for Apple and only for a little while. You can, and should, do better!


I think if Microsoft could repeat Apple's "mistakes" they would be ecstatic.

The evidence does not suggest that Apple's approach has "only worked for a while". Apple's iPhone sales are continuing to accelerate and iOS continues to build an ever larger user base. And of course the iOS has the largest number of Apps and developers etc plus an App market measured in billions.
