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?

Anyone remember the Zune? Apple got there first, other vendors got there cheaper and/or better, and Microsoft got there late... Just like the last time.

I wish MS would stick with desktop stuff. They're actually good at that, and it isn't going away.
