Speaking at the Microsoft’s UK Tech Days event today in London, Steve Ballmer slammed Google’s Android phone software. “Unlike Google, if you write an app for Windows Phone 7, it’ll work on all Windows phones” said Ballmer.
The Microsoft boss was also quick to admit that Windows Mobile wasn’t perfect. “We got ourselves in to a little bit of a pickle with phones, but now we’re on track” he said.
In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft chief claimed that Android wasn’t free and contained hidden patent fees that the software giant is attempting to squeeze out of Motorola. Ballmer also claimed that Google are copying Bing in a recent Seattle Times interview.
Aside from the Android bashing, Ballmer also confirmed that Windows Phone 7 devices will be available in the UK in two weeks.
