Bill Gates now uses an Android phone!

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has revealed he now uses an Android phone, rather than a Windows phone.

“Recently, I actually did switch to an Android phone,” he said, speaking on Fox News recently.

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

While he doesn’t reveal the exact model, he does note that it has “a lot of Microsoft software” on it, which could suggest it’s a Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition.

Gates also praised the “genius” Steve Jobs during the  interview. But he said he hadn’t converted to an iPhone.

“So, no iPhone?” he was asked.

“No iPhone,” Gates replied.

Gates’s admission places him in the same camp as most consumers. Android is the world’s most popular mobile operating system with over 80 per cent of the market share, according to IDC.
