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.

Techies don't seem to understand that WP8/Nokia aren't trying to compete with Android and iOS. WP8/Nokia It isn't designed for hipsters or geeks. It is is a modern feature phone combination designed for people who just want to make calls, check emails, listen to music and take photos. It does that admirably at very low cost.
