Why The Xbox 360 Will Be Microsoft’s iPhone?

Because most windows phone suck?

M$ really put a lot of hard work behind the Xbox brand and it along with Windows really represent the company like how the iPhone is Apple go to device.

Both devices have huge loyal communities and each device almost is the default icon of it's field.

Really? The Xbox and Kinect are gonna replace Windows as Microsoft's flagship product? I couldn't even guess the real numbers, but I'd imagine that the entire Xbox division makes a single-digit percentage of the money their Windows division brings in, at best. The whole reason they can take big losses from failed products, buy out company after company, and shell out maximum moneybags for advertising is because of their Windows revenue. It's the source of everything. It powers the entire company with cash.

Agree....Windows is so expensive and so vital. There are other systems like Linux and OS for Apple but Windows is Microsoft cash cow (a lot of Laptops/PCs come preloaded with it) along with what Coryok said Microsoft word (sadly not preloaded). There are free word software but it is not the same as Microsoft Word. Microsoft will always be a software company. It is because it this article appears here that people think the 360 is the flagship product for Microsoft but it isn't.
