Microsoft & Marketshare

While reading the latest post over at Liveside.net (looking at Windows Phone 7’s Mango release & Windows Live services…link below), I started thinking about Windows and the rest of Microsoft. Windows became strong by allowing a huge spread of machines to run it; particularly low cost ones. Even if you couldn’t afford a Mac, there is a Windows PC out there for you. Oddly, with Zune and WP7, they’ve focused on the premium market. Why isn’t there an entry priced Zune? Even Apple has lower priced iPods. Funny to think that price plays a role, I guess. Pundits tend to focus on features and innovation. Yet most consumers must deal with price, at least some point in the purchase process.
