I jumped on this too fast, methinks. With a second look, I think the Broadpoint guys forgot Microsoft's business model is to sell software to OEMs and end users. That model potentially works very well in cellphones which are increasingly made by M'soft's Taiwan PC partners. And anyway, who would buy a Microsoft phone? Can you imagine the TV commercials Apple could make for them?
