Speaking at Microsoft's financial analysts meeting today, CEO Steve Ballmer was refreshingly realistic about the company's struggles in smartphones and tablets. "Mobile devices. We have almost no share."

Right. Now that Ballmer himself admits it, can we please settle the discussion? Windows Phone has been a failure up until now.

It's pure sadness, as I´m pretty sure that this will be discouraging for other entrepreneurs like Jolla.

I guess the landscape at this point is pretty much set in stone for the coming decade. I don't think there is a way for Android and Apple to lose their market share, as they both played their moves brilliantly.

I hope that at least they keep fighting each other in the innovation area instead of resting on their laurels.
