See the evil Balmer above ? Ya that is what Microsoft is turning into, E-V-I-L !!
Microsoft owns only 2.7% of the smartphone market. No matter how hard had they been pushing their devices up the chute Microsoft is not getting anywhere better, soon.
In a latest attempt, Microsoft has set aside a budget of $200 Million for their latest scheme. They will pay $10-$15 to every AT&T employee who will just recommend Windows Phone over Android or iOS. I wonder how are they going to determine who recommended and who didn’t.
Pretty shabby sales tactics eh ? I believe this tactic alone shows how pretty sad their devices are and that even Microsoft itself doesn’t have any optimistic hopes about their devices doing any better on their own !
Personally, I was pretty confident about the Windows Phone 7 devices but with Microsoft giving clear hints that they are not confident about their product is sad news indeed.
