Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam. With iOS, [Apple] just added a fifth row of icons. Android is... kind of a mess. Look at Samsung - there's clearly mutiny going on. The only OEM making money off of Android is Samsung." There's truth to all these statements, which makes it all the more surprising that Microsoft appears to be unable to properly capitalise on them. Sure, WP appears to be doing well in a few select markets, but by no means the kind of success Microsoft and (Nokia) was banking on. Microsoft will pull through. Nokia on the other hand...

What he calls a mess is just a healthy diversity. It's that diversity that keeps Android growing and developing. It's why both iOS and Windows Phone DON'T grow or develop... unless they get scared by Android. ;)

Its diversity for sure, but whether or not its healthy is arguable. Its unhealthy from the POV of maintaining Android as a brand, but Google has recently shown it cares very little about that. Its fine with fading into the background if they can keep standing in the middle between you and your data.
