Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has been willing to admit some of the company’s missteps in the past, and he’s just done so again in addressing the now infamous Kin. Speaking with The Seattle Times, Ballmer said that the « No. 1 message from Kin is a message of focus, » and that ultimately, « it just defocused activity from Windows Phone. » Not exactly a huge surprise by any means, but it’s still pretty notable to hear straight from the top, especially considering how much it cost Microsoft to learn that message. As for the rest of the interview, Ballmer didn’t make a ton of news, but he did say that we’ll be seeing additional Windows 7 tablet form factors starting this Christmas, and he revealed that he does in fact have a Facebook page, but he won’t say which of the many Steve Ballmer pages is the real one.
