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.

And just why would this be discouraging for folks like Jolla. I would be discouraging if, like Microsoft, they decided to design by committee, play follow the leader, and not actually innovate except at very shallow levels. If that is the case, the Microsoft statement (and general malaise) would be discouraging.

However, my guess that is NOT Jolla (and others') business plan.
