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.

The Asha phones are really interesting devices, solid competition for WP and low-end Android. And of course the new FirefoxOS phones. For people who use phones to make phone calls. :-)

I really hope that Asha 210 lasts as long as your 6021 did:

It's sad really, the Asha platform looked really nice. I'm still tempted to get one just for the hell of it, but it's not in the budget right now.
