PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

Yeah, but that's not the point I responded to and you're not the person I replied to.

I replied to the specific claim that nobody wants Microsoft products, that much is provably false. Check the chart.

The claim that no one wants Windows Phone or MS products is indeed ridiculous but people aren't exactly flocking to buy Lumias and HTC phones with WP on them either.

The devices do sell but it's nothing spectacular.

But also as the chart says, volumes are growing sequentially at double digit percentages. It remains to be seen if Nokia can keep it up, but if they can then things will get better for them.

Microsoft's Surface sales figures are in: OH DEAR

Microsoft spent more in a single year advertising the Windows 8 and Surface launches than it took in from Surface sales that same year.


This is not Surface RT, this is Surface.
