While traditional assets of Microsoft has remained more or less stagnant over the years, the mobile division is certainly one of the less lucrative divisions that Microsoft has been in.

Microsoft is restucturing itself. It won’t focus on making operating systems for phones and other devices. It would make cross-platform services that work on every device, instead of an obscure operating system that doesn’t work properly.
Microsoft is becoming a services company, rather than a hardware or software one under the leadership of its new CEO, Satya Nadella.
What do you think? Can Satya help Microsoft get back its mojo?
