Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Gets an Android Phone, Slams iPhone

July 28, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

It’s called the world wide web for  a reason….it reaches the world. Mark Zuckerberg recently made some comments on his Facebook page that his Blackberry was hurting his thumbs and that he was either going to get an iPhone or an Android phone. That was followed up with, “This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers so I can keep it charged everywhere I go and a land line so I can actually make phone calls.”  I think that is a hilarious post, but apparently someone did not. That post was either deleted or made private. He is obviously referring to the highly publicized antenna issues and reception problems on the AT&T network.  I don’t think Mark realized what he was getting himself into with a comment like that. If the following screenshot from his Facebook page is true, Mark is trying an Android phone.

I read that his actual comment was that he would get an iPhone 4 if he did not get an Android. Then there was the argument that he did not get an iPhone 4, he got an iPhone 3GS.  Zuckerberg did respond to one post and say he was not referring to the iPhone 4 but a current model that he had recently gotten. With the money that man has, I wouldn’t doubt that he has both. Why not? I find it very humorous that Mark experienced some privacy issues on his own site!
