Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

Well, aside from the fact that Nokia seems to be in financial decline and mobile versions of Windows have never really managed to gain significant market share in over a decade.

The wording tells it. Its looking good but not more. As soon as you try to use it, try to do something, try to install apps its over. But hey, at least it looks good while waiting forever in the shelfes.

Only in the OSNews bizarro world is 150% YoY growth and sequential growth every quarter since last year a failure in the marketplace. There is beyond clear momentum in Windows Phone and Nokia (their shares shot up 60% since their all time low) yet its still written off by those who see what they want to see.

The same idiots were the ones saying Samsung would prevail because of "prior art" when all Samsungs exhibits didnt pass the litmus test for prior art. Not one, not two, but ALL of their defenses failed.
