After a decade of swings and misses, Microsoft finally threw the smartphone towel and is exiting the business. I have discussed this many time over the last decade. Microsoft has wanted to win in the wireless space for so long. So, why did they fail and are they gone for good? I don’t think so.
They started with regular cellphones then moved to smartphones over more years than I can count. With their powerful brand name and numbers of corporate and individual customers, it should have been a natural success story.
