Microsoft has been trying hard to capture the smartphone market but has not achieved any significant success till date.
It is obvious that the company’s Co-founder of windows seems to have no faith in their own operating system( Windows 10 Mobile Ecosystem).
In an interview with Fox News, Bill Gates revealed that he is currently using an Android Smartphone with a number of Microsoft software in it and prefers it over iPhone.
“It’s great that Apple is continuing to good work [after Steve Jobs passed away]. I happen to use all Windows-based PCs. The phone that I have recently, I actually did switch to an Android phone with lot of Microsoft software, but the competition in software and IT space that Steve [Jobs] help foster, is phenomenal and Microsoft is a big part of that.”
Although Bill Gates didn’t specifically mention which Android smartphone he is currently using his interview quite makes everyone to easily speculate that it might be Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ which was launched by Samsung this year.
The smartphone comes with applications such as office, OneDrive, Cortana, Outlook and more.
Bill Gates outrightly rejected any speculations of him using an iPhone and said: “No, no iPhone “.
However Gates applauded the founder of the company, Steve Jobs for his work in the industry.
“Steve was a genius. Absolutely amazing.”The competition in the software and IT space that Steve helped foster, it’s phenomenal.”
