Microsoft has no "Plan B" when it comes to mobile

Microsoft CFO Peter Klein was quoted as saying "It's less 'Plan B' than how you execute on the current plan, We aim to evolve this generation of Windows to make sure we have the right set of experiences at the right price points for all customers." So far Microsoft has not managed to make any kind of significant dent in the mobile space with any of it`s mobile products.

Reuters reports:

"Gartner estimates that Microsoft sold fewer than 900,000 Surface tablets in the fourth quarter, which is a fraction of the 23 million iPads sold by Apple. Microsoft has not released its own figures but has not disputed Gartner's.

Windows phones now account for 3 percent of the global smartphone market, Gartner says, which is almost double their share a year ago but way behind Google's Android with 70 percent and Apple with 21 percent.

To grab more share, Klein said Microsoft was working with hardware makers to make sure Windows software is available on devices ranging from phones to tablets to larger all-in-one PCs."

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick
    question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!
