Microsoft says Windows Phone will outsell Apple in China

Bloomberg:

Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), the world’s largest software maker, said its Windows Phone operating system will propel it past Apple Inc. (AAPL) in China’s smartphone market as its partners release devices costing as little as $158.

Microsoft is losing its mind. Maybe they’ll hold another mock funeral for the iPhone because that worked so good for their iPod strategy.

    Of course they have to think that internally, but making these bold statements before they even have a decent foothold just sets them up for mockery and ridicule if it doesn’t pan out.

    “Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), the world’s largest software maker…”

    By what measure does Bloomberg believe that Microsoft can still be called “the world’s largest software maker”? I would think Apple would have a claim to that title these days.

      I was going to say. Is this a market share claim? Because by almost any other measure, Apple is trouncing Microsoft.

    Another example of what happens when a company can’t tell the difference between internal cheerleading and PR.
