An important meeting took place at Microsoft headquarters in which the top financial analysts sat down in order to assess the strong suits and chinks in the armor of Bill Gates’ epic organization. Steve Ballmer, the CEO who will retire by the year’s end, said that while Microsoft lacked in the mobile sector, he saw this as an opportunity instead of a risk. The takeover of Nokia was proof of this. 

ZDNet reports that At Microsoft's Financial Analyst Meeting (FAM) on September 19, Myerson answered a question about the future of Windows RT, Microsoft's version of Windows for ARM. After noting that ARM devices, especially phones, have incredible battery life, Myerson noted that lines are blurring.

Myerson said, "Windows RT was our first ARM tablet. And as phones extend into tablets, expect us to see many more ARM tablets, Windows ARM tablets in the future."

Microsoft is looking for a way to excel against such top players as Apple and Samsung, and Nokia is a key part of its strategy. Ballmer furthermore spoke of how during the post-millennial decade, his company was so into Windows Vista that far less attention was given towards the market for smart phones. This according to him was his greatest mistake. 

AllThingsD reports that Turner said in beginning of his talk during FAM, “While this business faces some headwinds with the PC business … we have a full transition that is under way.” 

Ballmer then went ahead to outline how the Windows platform was what Microsoft was all about. And today, the firm was ready to deal in phones, tablets and PCs. In other words, it was in a mood to progress and go out on a limb. He spoke of how a great job had to be done in order to succeed. 

The execs meanwhile were really excited about the cloud system. The succession of the new CEO was a case in point that has been put on hold. A series of pie graphs regarding Microsoft’s business enterprise allocation were discussed. Social media was another source which was looked into. Judging from the results of the meeting, Microsoft is here to stay. And it has all the blessings of a super-genius like Bill Gates to see it through.
