Shortly after leaving Microsoft Steven Sinofsky is tweeting from an iPhone, here is why
Former Windows head Steven Sinofsky was one of the most influential figures at Microsoft, suggested for the role of the future CEO by many until suddenly he quit the company for what was officially pictured as pursuing his own goals, but in reality it seems there was a clash with current chief executive Steve Ballmer. Nonetheless, it might have been a bit surprising to see tweets from Sinofsky - just months after his departure from Microsoft - coming from an iPhone.

This was fertile ground for all kinds of theorizations and rushed conclusions, ranging from thoughts that Sinofsky has quickly jumped to Apple’s products after no longer being tied by Microsoft to a more sensible opinion that he is just using various products to evaluate them.

So it turns out the reason is very mundane with Sinofsky changing devices quite often as he should actually.

Sinofsky knows better than any1 how good WP8 is, so he uses another phone now he is not obliged to use a WP.

No way, he doesn't have anything to contribute to Android, just look at WP8.
