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.

There's simply no more room to sell devices in the tens of millions in a few months. Apple and Samsung capitalized their chances ealier when market was growing much faster than it is now. Which has been good for them but definitely non-conclusive.

Apparently, no-one remembers when people were making fun of Xbox. Who's leading that market today ?
