Balmer Says Microsoft Will Be A Hardware Company

Steve Ballmer says that Microsoft is prepared to change their focus a bit and there will be a fundamental shift in their business.  They will be building devices when they need to - and this pretty much confirms that a Microsoft Phone is coming.  If this looks anything like the ZuneHD, I'm all for Microsoft to build hardware.  They can and have done a good job in the past.  The Verge has more details.

"There will be times when we build specific devices for specific purposes," explains Ballmer. "In all our work with partners and on our own devices, we will focus relentlessly on delivering delightful, seamless experiences across hardware, software and services."
