At a Web 2.0 Summit yesterday where Steve Ballmer was being interviewed, he repeatedly answered the question of whether Microsoft would ever make its own phone by saying Microsoft was â€œfocused on enabling hardware innovation.â€
While some interpreted this as a non-denial, it makes much more sense for Microsoft to support OEMs in making true Windows Phone 7 â€œheroâ€ phones like the Google Nexus line, featuring the latest technologies and design without a deep regard for the price or saleability of the hardware when it eventually hits the market.
Do our readers think Microsoft should do a round robin of OEMs and have a series of great Microsoft-branded Windows Phone 7 handsets produced? Let us know below.
Thanks Anon for the tip.
