"First, Andy Lees, SVP of Microsoft's Mobile Communications Business, said
the company has sold more than 50 million Windows Mobile devices over its
lifetime. Then, HTC's CEO Peter Chou came on stage and reminisced that his
company has sold more than 40 million HTC Windows Mobile devices around the
world. Chou: "12 years ago when we started our company, we met with
Microsoft early on. It was clear that we shared the same vision of smart
connectivity. I'm an old veteran of Windows Mobile. We try really hard to
make all the visions happen, and we have sold more than 40 million HTC
Windows mobile phones around the world." "

"The next conclusion to make is that the other 49 OEM partners, including
Palm (NSDQ: PALM), Motorola (NYSE: MOT) and Samsung, have sold a 10 million
phones all combined. "

That's cute and all that MS sold over 50 million in 12 years.

That's only 23.6 million less than Apple has sold in less than
four.

But since profit is so important to you, MS makes about $12.00 per
phone sold. Apple makes about $300.

MS- $20 B net profit.

So you're happy that consumers are getting the shaft from a very large
corporation. How far up Jobs ass is your nose anyway?
