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.

Definitely agreed.

I think the view about Nokia and Windows Phone in general is clearly influenced by superficial comments and remarks which usually come from mindsets focused on old OS wars or glamourous/gossip-style behaviour.

In my opinion, even Nokia-Microsoft deal is grossly mis-interpreted and underestimated. As you reported, a more careful analysis would be needed.
