One particular failure (IMHO) is likely to be their view that there should be one platform from phones through tablets to laptops and PCs.  No.  These are different beasts for different purposes.  As Steven J Vaughn-Nichols stated on the debate I cited in the OP:

"Tablets are for information consumers and PCs are for information producers."

Of course there's some overlap, and many people are both at different times, but they are quite different contexts, requiring different apps and with UI optimised to the context.
