Windows Fascinating, this. As a Windows Phone 7 user, I can attest that it is every bit as good as iOS and Android - heck, in my experience, it is more polished, more consistent, smoother, and faster than either of those two. Yet, despite raving reviews and glowing user comments all over the web, Windows Phone 7 simply isn't selling. Former Windows Phone 7 general manager Charlie Kindel believes it's because neither carriers nor device makers like the control Microsoft exerts over the platform.

Unfortunately for MS, Corporations are now embracing the "Bring your own device" mantra. It may be really hard to sell ELAs for Mobile devices. Thuse Ease of the product to the consumer will dictate Profit for the developers, carriers, and 3rd party developers.
