Re: Not out of the game yet
@tzubair – Microsoft could have their own app development team with some creative ideas to increase the users. Thereafter they could get some 3rd party developers to continue.

Re: Not out of the game yet
@melgross - I wonder what made them to decide that they should go for a Surface phone. It's just a waste of money and resources. Surface should have been the segment for business tablets.

Re: Enterprise sales?
@melgross – In terms of enterprise security I still feel Blackberry is doing a good job. Though not sure how it is with their new Blackberry Priev that runs on Android. Apple is doing a good job too, then it's Android.

@mejiac - No operating system has a large collection of apps like Android. That's where blackberry has a built in emulator to run android apps on the OS 10.

Re: Not out of the game yet
I am not a great fan of android tablets but I should tell you the Samsung Galaxy S2 tablet is pretty impressive. Elegant slim design that Microsoft never had on the Surface tablets.

Re: Not out of the game yet
Would you take a Samsung tablet over a Surface? I have to confess I have tried neither, although the last tablet I had was an Android tablet. It is one of those things that I feel like I should own for some reason. Has either successfully implemented a physical keyboard?

I'm a Galaxy Note user so it makes me think I should at least look at the Samsung tablets, although I would be willing to look at a surface if they could pull off the keyboard.

@Brian.Dean: In 10 years Microsoft would be long gone. Only their core businesses and other subsidiaries will remain that aren't actively involved in Mobile Computing.

Re: Not out of the game yet
@Progman: I think the tablet market would slip up from their hands as well. Nobody I have seen uses a windows tablet. Nobody. They all use an iPad or an Mi Pad or any other Android Tablet. Not to mention Samsung's tablets are really good. I think Microsoft should stick to enterprise solutions and give up on the mobile computing segment. The only only reason for the Windows Phone to fail is that horrible app store.

Re: Enterprise sales?
@mejiac: exactly. It isn't enterprise favourable. It doesn't take much from cloud and neither does it have that support in connected development or IOT usage integration.

Re: Not out of the game yet
@Mejiac: I think Windows Phone isn't getting that much because nobody is adopting it anymore. Look at HTC. They don't even care about their own Windows Phone. Windows Phones have no takers manufacturer wise. The only big manufacturing company is Microsoft and it is not taken seriously by others.
