Eric Schmidt finally admits that he owns an iPhone
Schmidt, back in 2013, penned a guide to help iOS users make the transition to Android. So that makes his use of an iPhone a little more Benedict Arnold-esque than when he used a 'Berry. Yesterday at Startup Fest in Amsterdam, Schmidt told the audience that in addition to his Samsung Galaxy S7, his smartphone arsenal includes the Apple iPhone 6s.
Actually, owning a rival's phone is a schrewd move for Schmidt, as it allows him to see what the competition is doing. And don't forget that Google has a number of iOS apps that Schmidt might want to monitor from time to time.
So Mr. Schmidt, which of those two handsets is better? "Samsung S7 is better," Schmidt said. "It has a better battery. And those of you who are iPhone users (know) I'm right," said the one-time Google CEO.
