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.

Very surprising to see such honesty from Microsoft's supersalesman/head cheerleader. Maybe his exit date makes such honesty possible?


Ballmer said pretty much the same thing before (http://www.mobileburn.com/16632/news/microsoft-ceo-ballmer-says-win...) so the suprise being expressed in blogosphere is actually a symptom of low memory capability than actuallity.
