Mark Zuckerberg’s personal Facebook page let slip his feelings for BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android, a particularly touchy subject given Facebook’s involvement with all of those mobile platforms. By the sounds of it, Mark had worn his thumbs ragged on BlackBerry, tried an iPhone but was unsatisfied with reception and battery life, and unless he switches to Android before then, will likely get an iPhone 4. Contrary to Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook comment are reports that his phone actually was an iPhone 4. If that’s the case, and he’s still willing to go Android, maybe the iPhone 4 failed to impress a very important person in the tech industry. It’s also interesting that Mark Zuckerberg is siding with Google’s phone, after all of the trouble Facebook has had with the search giant.
Even for your average consumer, Zuckerberg’s choices seem pretty commonplace – BlackBerry’s all work, iPhone’s fun but has some prominent pitfalls, while Android seems generally well-rounded. Has anyone had a similar experience bouncing around the smartphone families?
