Microsoft is hosting a Venture Capital Summit today at Mountain View, being attended by around 200 Venture Capitalists.  Like everything else these days, the event is live on Twitter, and from there some interesting quotes have emerged about Windows Mobile.

According to Pjozefak, a venture capitalist,   Steve, like all of us, regret Windows Mobile 7 has not launched yet.  In his words “Ballmer says they screwed up with Windows Mobile. Wishes they had already launched WM7. They completely revamped the team.”

Beninato quotes Ballmer talking about poor execution in Windows Mobile: “We’ve pumped in some new talent” and “This will not happen again’“. We already know the company is pumping massive resources into Windows Mobile, calling it their second priority after Windows 7.

The companies keywords for the future is Seamless and Cloud, according to pjozefak again.

Hopefully, as in the past when the company has made a major turn around, we will soon see the fruits of their determination in real products.
