Bill Gates is a man who knows his stuff when it comes to technology
He co-founded Microsoft in 1975, and with the success of Microsoft came all sorts of creations, such as the Windows smartphones, which failed to make a huge impact since hitting the market.
Well Bill seems to agree with the world and instead uses an Android, BBC reports, which is a huge stab in the back for his own work and, well, of course, Apple.
“Recently, I actually did switch to an Android phone,” he said, speaking on Fox News Sunday, before saying: “No, no iPhone.”
Gates, however, says he still installs a number of Microsoft apps on his phone.
In 2014, the company made a massive investment of $7.2bn for Nokia’s handset business, though this proved pointless, as their sales only made up for a mere percent of global smartphone sales in 2016.
A decision was therefore made to start creating apps available on Androids and iPhones.
“Microsoft’s strategy under its current chief executive Satya Nadella is to make Microsoft apps and services widely available on Android and iPhone,” analyst at the tech consultancy IHS Markit Ian Fogg told BBC.
“That’s where their customers are these days. It used to be putting the Windows operating system on everyone’s phone was a priority, but now it’s about selling services such as Office and Outlook email.
“To do that, you have to make those services available on every device.”
