Submission + - Bill Gates: Windows Phone strategy was 'a mistake' (theregister.co.uk)

puddingebola writes: Perhaps it isn't newsworthy, but Bill Gates has characterized Microsoft's mobile and smartphone strategies as "a mistake." From the article, "In an interview with CBS This Morning's Charlie Rose on Monday, Gates admitted he wasn't pleased with Microsoft's performance in the mobile market, going as far as to characterize the company's smartphone strategy as "a mistake." "We didn't miss cell phones," Gates said. "But the way that we went about it didn't allow us to get the leadership, so it's clearly a mistake."
