Microsoft’s Ballmer thinks Android is ‘wild’, ‘uncontrolled,’ & susceptible to malware

LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman interviewed Steve Ballmer yesterday, which saw Microsoft’s CEO talk about Windows Phone and it’s rival operating systems.

One of those rival operating systems is Google’s Android, which apparently Ballmer thinks is “Wild“, “Uncontrolled” and susceptible to malware, while Apple’s iOS ecosystem was “high priced” and “highly controlled.” Heh, looks like Windows Phone is trying to be the middle ground between the two operating systems then?

Personally, I find it hilarious that the company that made Windows, the desktop OS, can call any other OS susceptible to malware, but eh atleast we’re getting a clearer picture of what audience Microsoft is trying to pitch Windows Phone for. Check out the entire interview, over at the source link below.
