Microsoft PR must hate it every single time CEO Steve Ballmer gets on a mic. Bloggers on the other hand...? From the latest analyst briefing:
"The truth of the matter is all the consumer market mojo is with Apple and to a lesser extent BlackBerry. And yet, the real market momentum with operators and the real market momentum with device manufacturers seems to primarily be with Windows Mobile and Android."
Um.. Apple and BlackBerry manufacture their own devices there Steve, so while their internal momentum is enough to steamroll an industry, ODM's can't get their hands on iPhone OS X or RIM's OS no matter how badly they probably want to.
Apple Insider rightly points out, of course, that this is the same line Microsoft used about the iPod when promoting their own PlaysForSure DRM platform (which later became closer akin to PlaysNoMore).
Check out Apple Insider's full coverage to get Ballmer's views on Apple's Mac, Google, Android on Netbooks vs. Windows 7, and how Microsoft could be like RCA! (?!)
