Hey Android users, hows that Computer Science going?

Steve Ballmer. He always creates headlines when he makes a speech, but sometimes it’s not for the reasons he’d hoped. The Microsoft boss told the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco that ..


You don’t need to be a computer scientist to use a Windows phone (but ) you do to use an Android phone. It is hard for me to be excited about the Android phones.

We’re guessing that he’s forgotten about the massive range of entry-level Android handsets and the large proportion of “normal” users that use them daily. Hey, my mom has one.

He does go on to praise the iPhone somewhat though, calling them “different”. We can’t laugh too much though – Microsoft are raking in cash through the sale of Android phones.

  • Every time that man speaks we get a little more incite into why Windows Phone 7 isn’t a success…

    That guy is more like a clown to me. Maybe it is time for him to leave the place for some real marketing specialists…

  • I wish Windows Phone 7 all the best but Steve Balmer does talk crap. It’s not like he even puts up a good arguement! All he does is say a few stupid comments and everyone ignores him! What a muppet! (no offense intended for any muppets out there)

    The guy is lovable, and looks like humpy dumpty, but I disagree with him on this one. I really like th e look and feel of WP7 but at least with android i can customize almost every setting, and turn off backround data sending which is a problem with WP7. Plus they have to bring better hardware to the table. There are some great looking WP7 devices coming out (Focus Flash, Searay), but the specs are crap comapared to devices liek the Galaxy Prime. Yes WP7 has a very effecient OS. But Android can get faster too. And when it does, you still have great specs, where as with WP7 you’re stuck with a single core, 480p screen, half a gig of ram device. That is until they release Apollo devices but who knows how long that will take.
