I agree with DBVS on this subject. Microsoft was not late (as I pointed out they had smartphones and pocket pc's before anyone else) , they just did not have the goods people wanted at the time. They did not show the common man an easy to use device.
Sinofsky does take the major blame by removing features that he could have left in. His arrogance cost him his job.
