Nadella, who succeeded Ballmer one month ago, took a step this week by unraveling part of a restructuring his predecessor put in place in one of his last acts as chief executive officer. Nadella appointed onetime Democratic political operative Mark Penn to the just-invented post of strategy chief and shuffled other executives to resolve an unwieldy setup Ballmer had established in the marketing department.

Interesting look at the goings-on surround Ballmer's end.

Yes, but the easy of use made it more expensive than higher tech phones. Mobile Safari was really the only highlight.

I was missing too much to spend my money on an iPhone until the iPhone 3G arrived. Now the iPhone is still expensive, but I gladly pay up for the ease of use, (third party) app quality and ecosystem even though there are more advanced phones out there.

Personally I can imagine people doubting if the iPhone would take off. Google thought it would and acted, the rest didn't and Microsoft reacted too slow.
