Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer says he is optimistic about Windows Phone. Speaking at the company’s 2013 Financial Analyst Meeting, Ballmer commented on the Nokia deal and talked about the Windows Phone market share, and how he felt that by having a small market share was actually an opportunity for Microsoft.
He said, “Mobile devices. We have almost no share. I don’t know whether to say that with enthusiasm or kind of uncomfortable tension. But I’m an optimistic guy. Any time we have low market share sounds like upside opportunity to me. We’re paying to do it all day every day…It’s getting after it and really making sure we deliver the kind of revenue and gross margin upside that’s certainly there.”
