Microsoft: "Google not ahead of us"

From Japan today, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer claimed that Google wasn't ahead of Microsoft in any way - oh, except online searches.

The AP reports that Ballmer said "Google is not ahead of us. In the area of search specifically, Google would lead."

Ballmer's in Japan to tout the Windows Live package (no longer in beta as of Tuesday), which combines e-mail, instant messaging, blogging and photo-sharing. Sound familiar, Blogger readers?

In fact, on Monday Google announced Android, a software package for mobile devices - bypassing the PC (or Mac).

Ballmer's response, to the AP?

Ballmer said it was difficult to comment on Google's mobile plans because they were still "just words on paper" that had yet to begin.

I've just seen the Steve Ballmer (Microsoft CEO) and Nigel Clifford (Symbian CEO) speeches about Android ( and they really don't seem to be worried about Android, as we can see in their smiley and calm faces. I think this competition is very healthy to IT market and good to costumers.
