Microsoft is releasing nine new phones that will operate on its Windows operating system. Why? The smart phone game is over for the foreseeable future with Apple's iPhone and phones running Google's Android software. Does Microsoft remember Zune? Microsoft software is so over-engineered that there is no way this phone operating system will be easy to use and not kill the phone's speed and ease of use. Microsoft needs to stick with what it does best - designing productivity software. I always thought anti-trust complaints against Microsoft in the 1990s were a joke, and Microsoft has proved why. Is it me or is Microsoft always late to the party and wearing a powder blue tuxedo?
