Just yesterday I read a post about the ten most significant upcoming Smartphones for 2014 and there wasn't one Windows phone on the list. That said, Microsoft's long-term commitment to the Surface, RT, Windows 8, Metro, Nokia and its various software offerings like Office are a testiment to the maturity of the corporation. And it also signifies that they continue to have deep pockets and the ability to stay in the game for a long time.
