    Ballmer: Windows Phone 7 Not Successful Yet

    Ya’ think?  A little sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.

    While Microsoft has enjoyed many successes over the past year, Windows Phone 7 hasn’t been among them, admitted Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer during the opening keynote Monday at the 2011 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, being held this week in Los Angeles.

    Ballmer took time to celebrate some of the successes the company has had over the past year, such as the ongoing success of Microsoft Office and Windows 7. He did display some modesty in admitting that the company did not make major in-roads with Windows Phone 7, though. “In a year, we’ve gone from very small to ... very small,” he said, referring to the market share that phone operating system has made since its introduction last year.

    You can’t do more, make more, be more, than the next guy, if you think like the next guy. Think different.
