During yesterday's Q4 fiscal 2014 earnings call, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella restated Microsoft's new and increasingly important cross-platform focus.
"We are clear that our experiences are going to be available on all devices. We have a specific goal for multiple Microsoft applications to be available on every home screen," Nadella said.
"Mobility for us goes beyond just devices," Nadella noted. "While we are certainly focused on building great phones and tablets, we think of mobility more expansively. We think the opportunity ... comes from running our productivity experiences on Windows, iOS and Android device(s)."
