Bill Gates Co-Founder Of Microsoft Says He's Using an Android Phone


Microsoft attempts at capturing the smartphone market have all failed spectacularly, and it appears the company's co-founder has no faith in the current Windows 10 Mobile ecosystem. Under Satya Nadella's leadership, Microsoft has brought its much-used productivity software to both Google'sAndroid and Apple's iOS platforms, and it seems former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates seems satisfied with this route. In an interview, Bill Gates shared he is now using an Android smartphone with lots of Microsoft software on board, choosing it over an iPhone.


In an interview with Fox News, Bill Gates said, "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 a 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."

But world’s richest man didn’t say about any particular Android phone that he is using as his personal handset, the reference to "a lot of Microsoft software" helps us guess that he could be talking about the Microsoft edition which was launched in April that is either Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. To recall, the Microsoft-customised version of the smartphones comes with the Redmond-based company's applications such as Office, OneDrive, Cortana, Outlook and more.


Bill Gates clears doubts that he is using an iPhone as well on the side, he simply said, "No, no iPhone" when the interviewer asked him if he is not using the iPhone. He is not using an iPhone, but he praised Steve Jobs and Apple for their work in the industry during the interview.
