they missed the boat on WP
WP should have arrived with a proper Exchange/Outlook integration and server-side tools for business from day one. The business market was still wide open in 2009 but chasing the consumer iPhone space was dumb. And then effectively dumping WP7 to go to WP8 etc compounded the disaster.
MS simply has not had a proper strategy for WP since that well know fruit company released the touchy phone thing.
The announcement this week is effectively the end for WP .. who is going to buy or develop for a device that is effectively EOL ....... this is as crazy as HP and Palm/WebOS.
And these guys get 7 figure salaries...couldn't run a booze-up in a brewery!
