Microsoft misses the 20-million-license goal?


According to different reports, Microsoft failed in reaching 20 million WM licenses in the last fiscal year which ended June 30.

Microsoft response hinted about the fact that device manufacturers did not perform as they should have according to the plan.

"The OEMs give us predictions as to when they'll ship the devices, and I don't want to put them in the dunk tank, if that's a phrase, by implying that they didn't stay on time. That's confidential conversations that we have."

Nevertheless, Microsoft reported an increase in the market share (Increase of 2 percentage, to nearly 13 percentages of the world smartphone market).

My thoughts: With the new line of products from Samsung, HTC and Palm – I believe Microsoft is going to have a good year.
