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."

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...

A transitional OS? What a lame excuse just like the "not enough touch devices on the market" which we heard last quarter and before that it was "wait for holidays sales" and before that it was "wait for public release". Notice a pattern?

Is it really that hard to admit that Microsoft might have made a mistake with Windows 8? So far they would have made more money by staying with Windows 7. This whole disaster has cost them billions and the result is a lot of angry customers. If they would have listened to the critics from the beginning and not forced Metro or taken away Aero this disaster would not have happened. So far the critics have been right, that's not debatable.
