It’s interesting to read Microsoft’s Bill Gates rip into the notion that Google can become a successful competitor in the mobile space.
Gates told the Times it was unlikely that Google would be able to make inroads into Microsoft’s share of the market for mobile phone software.
“How many products, of all the Google products that have been introduced, how many of them are profit-making products?” the Times quoted Gates as saying.
“They’ve introduced about 30 different products; they have one profit-making product. So you’re now making a prediction without ever seeing the software that they’re going to have the world’s best phone and it’s going to be free?” the paper quoted him as saying.
