Ballmer Acknowledges Microsoft's Smartphone Mistakes


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer used the platform of the D8 Conference on June 3 to acknowledge his company’s missteps in the smartphone space, as well as the strength of competitors such as Apple’s iPhone and the ever-increasing number of Android-powered devices.

A full blow-by-blow of that conversation can be found on this Website, although it lacks the accuracy of a polished transcript.

“We were ahead of this game, and now we find ourselves No. 5 in the market,” Ballmer told The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg during an onstage question-and-answer session. “We missed a whole cycle. I’ve been quite public about the fact that I’ve made some changes in leadership around our Windows Phone software. We had to do a little cleanup.”  (Source: Nicholas Kolakowski, eWeek)
