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.

Ok this is where I seriously see Microsoft failing so bad! HTC and some Samsung can be hacked, but for nokias you need paid solutions. If they would allow for developers to improve their system, it would sorely fill in the gaps. Like in 7.5, hacked you had Bluetooth file transfers. Microsoft is stupid for closing the only real way to side load apps.
