|I remember when blackberry phones first came out with their monochrome screens, then later the palm treo 650 and I used to use windows mobile. Yes iPhone completely changed the game but Apple did not go on to gain some monopolistic share of the mobile space like windows did with the pc. Steve ballmer, was he to blame for this mess? I saw one article where it said gates and ballmer were not on speaking terms, and part of their argument was what he did with mobile. Bill gates stepped down in 2006, iphone was released in 2007. In my personal opinion, if bill gates was still in charge and hadn’t retired, there is no way they would have lost so badly in the mobile space, to the point of being wiped out. And now abandoning windows mobile? I think you can’t simply afford to abandon mobile, I spend way more time on mobile than on any desktop. Even now I still think they should have another go at mobile. Look at the competition, Apple and Samsung and google pixel have just become greedy with the prices they are charging. They should run the mobile division as a break even endeavour to take one last stand to try and get a foot back into the mobile space.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
