Also, not having any other mainstream phone manufacturers with Windows 10 Mobile announcements yesterday shows how naive Microsoft is, thinking that their hardware can carry the day for Windows 10 Mobile.

Kudos to MS for the great Surface hardware, and for Windows 10 in general, but they are obviously effectively clueless about the mobile phone market. The lack of committme...
