Bill Gates Uses An Android-Powered Phone?

6 min read

It’s a known fact that Windows powered phones have not made an impact on the smartphone industry. Bill Gates Microsoft’s Co founder has revealed he uses an Android powered smartphone, rather than a Windows one.

He said Recently, I actually did switch to an Android phone “. 

Microsoft’s own Windows Phones have failed to make a significant impact on the smartphone market, which is dominated by devices running Google’s Android operating system.

However, Mr Gates said he had installed lots of Microsoft apps on his phone.

When asked whether he also had an iPhone, perhaps as a secondary device, he replied: No, no iPhone.

He did not reveal which particular smartphone he currently uses.

In 2014, the software giant paid $7.2bn (£5.5bn) for Nokia’s handset business, but Windows-powered phones accounted for fewer than 1% of global smartphone sales in 2016.

Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10, can power smartphones in addition to laptops, tablets and desktop computers. However, few Windows 10 smartphones have been released.

In April, Microsoft started selling a customised version of Samsung’s Galaxy 8 smartphone in its US stores.

“Microsoft’s strategy under its current chief executive Satya Nadella is to make Microsoft apps and services widely available on Android and iPhone,” said Ian Fogg, an analyst at the tech consultancy IHS Markit.

      Well, that is exactly my thoughts. Probably he’s just hinting his love for Android.
