Microsoft today released as of March 31, 2014 in fiscal 2014 third quarter results, it is also a Satya nabarro Della (Satya Nadella) as Microsoft’s chief executive since the first quarter. Results showed that Microsoft third fiscal revenue reached $20.4 billion, with the same period of last year’s $20.4 billion. Net income of 5.66 billion dollars.
edit you don’t care about these glossy revenue/profit figures, because have Windows, Office and business service cash cow, Microsoft every quarter to hand over the beautiful beautiful results. Cause interest me most is that in the results analysis on the meeting, Microsoft CEO, once again confirmed that Microsoft will launch for wearable devices use Windows system.
“when new opportunities arise from wearable to Internet of things, we want with Microsoft Windows involved in all these areas.”
in the Microsoft Build conference held in last month, Microsoft has officially announced to equipment under 9 inches from Windows system (including Windows Phone) from licensing fees. This is a very aggressive marketing strategy. After all, the most authorized sale system is the core of profit model, deeply rooted in the Microsoft of DNA.
if Microsoft introduced wearable devices using a Windows version, apparently also should be free. Because of wearable device screen size significantly than mobile phones. For the Internet of things, there are positioning problem, difficult to easily call “screen size” the judgment method.
