Default Ballmer Reserved on WP7

'A number of you had a chance to kind of ask me a question ... which is how are we going to do,' Ballmer told the analysts, at Microsoft's Redmond, Wash. headquarters. 'And I think it's fair to say we've got a lot of work to do,' said Ballmer."</em></p><p><em></em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1231392477.usr2.jpg" /></p><p>Steve B's reservations come at a time when the last possible thing Microsoft wants to do is appear too confident. It's a fine line to walk, but I think they're playing it well: "We're confident in our product, it will speak for itself, we aren't going to make wild speculations." Are you reassured, or do you long for the Ballmer of the past?</p>
