Microsoft Hints at New Pricing Model for Windows Commented on: 19 weeks ago (December 10, 2014)

I keep going back to that BY VENDOR, Microsoft remains #3 in the segment. In the smartphone business, the only players that are "in the game" are Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft. Hey, BlackBerry...

Thanks for the summary. I have a Surface Pro 2 and, based upon my experience, I am not at all surprised with your results.
