Microsoft vrea sa fie ca Apple si sa construiasca tot mai multe device-uri

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer

CEO-ul Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, a trimis Martea trecuta scrisoarea anuala adresata actionarilor in care relateaza directiile pe care compania le-a stabilit si le urmeaza de acum incolo.

Ballmer a dezvaluit ca e foarte posibil ca pe viitor Microsoft sa construiasca si alte device-uri cum a facut cu XBOX sau tableta Surface ce va iesi pe piata in curand.

“There will be times when we build specific devices for specific purposes, as we have chosen to do with Xbox and the recently announced Microsoft Surface”

Zvonurile spun ca Microsoft se gandeste la fabricarea unui smartphone Microsoft ce va rula (evident) Windows Phone 8 si se va integra de minune cu tableta Surface, PC-urile ce ruleaza Windows 8 si XBOX360.

“We will continue to work with a vast ecosystem of partners to deliver a broad spectrum of Windows PCs, tablets and phones. We do this because our customers want great choices and we believe there is no way one size suits over 1.3 billion Windows users around the world.”

Ballmer este foarte entuziast in stilul sau caracteristic si vede in viitor multe cai de dezvoltare pentru companie, axandu-se mult pe: cloud computing, realizarea unei singure platforme (Windows) intre PC, tablete si telefoane, retele server si cloud si continuand sa schimbe felul in care oamenii invata, lucreaza, se joaca si interactioneaza unii cu altii.

“We are uniquely positioned to lead in these areas given the breadth of our devices and services portfolio, as well as our large, global partner and customer base and the growing Windows ecosystem. It truly is a new era at Microsoft — an era of incredible opportunity for us, for the 8 million developers building apps for our devices, for the more than 640,000 partners worldwide and, most important, for the people and businesses using our products to reach their full potential.”
