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?

They can't stick to desktop as the desktop is bound to downsize in the future. The mobile and living room space will increases. For now you couldn't get productive with mobile device or consoles, but we're getting to the point that these devices become sufficient to do everyday task (for most non-IT people) ex: writing email, reading news, using IM, writing text and making presentation. Sure purist will cry fool, but look around you and see how teens use these devices. Yeah, the Post-PC era is finally on us; it simply won't be as radical that most analyst predicted years ago.
