I have been saying on these pages for some time that Microsoft's lack of flagship devices on the Windows Phone platform is hurting the company. There are an array of very good (some of the best in fact) budget smartphones on the platform, but in terms of high end handsets there is scant choice. Even the Lumia 930, Lumia 1520, and HTC One M8 are aging and not current flagships, and the lack of high end quality has now been acknowledged by Microsoft's CEO.It is at least encouraging to see that Satya Nadella is admitting Microsoft's deficiencies in this area and the company is thought to be working to improve matters, with the Lumia 940 set to land alongside Windows 10 Mobile. Nadella said "we don't today have good devices" in regards to flagship offerings on Windows Phone 8.1.
