    As it is right now, today, Windows Mobile is finished. Every handset OEM is moving away from it, and going to Android.

    LG must have heard the shocking news this week about further delays, and is the latest to focus on Android.

    The Windows Mobile phone platform is finished. It has no chance as it is, let alone with further incomprehensible delays.

    Where's Ballmer? Show him the door.
