It currently runs on about 140 different handsets. Microsoft believes that by reducing the number of handsets on which the OS is available, it could better combat the competition.

I don't feel this is their main problem...
Surely, MS will focus on HTC being exclusive. Then they can truly focus on the competition.
They had better do something pretty quick otherwise any WM advertisements (if their are any) might be a lot like their defensive "Mojave Experiment" commercials (what a shame).
I am a windows mobile fan, but I think this idea makes a lot of sense, but I think what Microsoft should also try to do is force all of their phones to be consistently updated, instead of relying on the operator. Both
