High-profile investor and entrepreneur Mark Cuban gave Microsoft and Nokia a nice little holiday gift in the form of a plug for the new Nokia Windows Phone during an “Ask Me Anything” Q&A on Reddit on Christmas Eve.
The Nokia phone “crushes the IPhone 5. not even close,” wrote Cuban.
His answer came in response to a Redditor’s question about which kind of technology he uses. Cuban wrote, “I have a MacBook Air, but am trying the new Acer with Windows 8. I really, really like Windows 8 on my phone. I have 2 phones. first is samsung the 2nd was an Iphone5. THe new Nokia with windows replaced my Iphone 5.”
Presumably he was referring to the beefy Nokia Lumia 920, as reported by Business Insider, although he didn’t refer to the specific model.
Cuban also gave a hat tip to Amazon, saying he’s a member of the Prime subscription service.
Asked about T-Mobile product placement on the most recent season of Shark Tank, he acknowledged, “it is beyond cheesey. none of the sharks like it. but we learned from it and it will be different in the future.”
A Redditor asked, “What? You mean you don’t use T-Mobile 4G? Color me shocked!!!”
To which Cuban responded, “i actually do on my samsung. I love the tmobile wifi calling option. I love the open Android and Samsung platforms. I use a replacement keyboard sw which increases my typing speed (i still miss the speed typing on my sidekick).”
“I love myIPad and my macbook air is amazing when it doesnt crash, so i like apple products, but i think as far as phones, both Samsung 3 w android and the windows phone kick the Iphone’s ass. Its not even close.”
