Microsoft says it is happy with its Windows Phone partners. But for how long?

Will the company do the same with smartphones that it did with tablets?

By Ed Oswald, PC World |  Consumerization of IT, Microsoft, Nokia

Google released its own phone--the Nexus--which takes advantage of all the latest and greatest Android features. Apple controls all aspects of the iPhone, from its software to the hardware: RIM does the same thing with the BlackBerry. Microsoft is the odd man out here.

Don’t be too surprised in the not-too-distant future if Microsoft changes its tune, especially after the release of the Surface tablet. Microsoft partners, stay at the top of your game.
