Microsoft Financial analyst Charles Sizemore predicts that over time, a persistent Microsoft will come to not only thrive but dominate in the mobile computing space, because Apple has no "moats" to prevent customer attrition and its insistence at heavily controlling the ecosystem will drive customers away, while Google's offerings are too "shoddy." It's a bold prediction, but I suppose betting on Microsoft to be persistent and build on its strengths is a safe bet. But will persistence and flexibility be enough?

Analysts that make these kinds of predictions are a dime-a-dozen. They will push whatever agenda their paid to push.

Yeap, Microsoft is thriving on the mobile space. Please, do not make me laugh. And google┬┤s offering are so shoddy that hardware makers cannot sell them fast enough.

Everyone I know has an android phone with an i-phone here and there added. I have not met a person that uses a windows mobile phone or tablet in the last four years.

So keep dreaming but the horse left the stable quite a while ago and nobody wants to go back to Microsoft and its proprietary crap.
