"We faced a massive problem. It would have been very difficult to create a range of devices for every operator at every price that included every app in the world. We decided to focus on building something at a limited set of price points in a small, limited number of countries. That's what we did this year. We had to get that right. Now that we've done that, we want to get Windows Phone at more price levels and in more countries."
