Mark Cuban (Billionaire, Owner of Dallas Mavericks, Shark Tank) Drops iPhone 5 for a Lumia; Says “Windows Phone Kicks the iPhone’s Ass”
Mark Cuban the American (self made) billionaire and most widely known as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks (NBA champions of 2011), as well as one of the “Sharks” on Shark Tank (a show where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to billionaires/millionaires in hopes of an investment). Also very popular for his loud mouthed comments against rules and officiating in the NBA, NHL and the NFL (fun fact: he was fined 500,000 dollars for saying one of the officials of the NBA couldn’t manage a Dairy Queen). Anyways last night Mark Cuban did an AMA on Reddit, which was pretty interesting and enlightening- interestingly someone asked about Mp3 players and laptops to which Mark replied:
I have 2 phones. first is samsung the 2nd was an Iphone5. THe new Nokia with windows replaced my Iphone 5
i think as far as phones, both Samsung 3 w android and the windows phone kick the Iphone’s ass. Its not even close
Pretty cool to see that Lumias are getting some recognition, especially from someone like Mark who isn’t being paid to advertise the phone, and just posted that it kicks the iPhone’s ass on reddit is free advertising. Go Mark!
Here’s one of the Shark Tank pitches (one of my favorites- skip to 2:30 to see Mark in action):
