Steve Ballmer must be living in some kind of fantasy world. At the web 2.0 summit in San Francisco yesterday, Steve railed into Android, stating that Android phones are only for geeky computer scientists.

You don’t need to be a computer scientist to use a Windows phone and you do to use and Android phone…It is hard for me to be excited about the Android phones.Steve BallmerMicrosoft

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a computer scientist. I’m willing to bet that most of the 550,000+ people who buy Android phones every day are not computer scientists either. (Unless, of course, I completely don’t understand what qualifies as a computer scientist). With Android growing at an exponential rate and Windows Phone 7 struggling to gain traction in the crowded smartphone market, it seems the average consumer is on Google’s side with this one.

We’re sorry that nobody in the press was around to cover your keynote, Steve. We were all tuned in to Hong Kong to watch Google revolutionize the mobile industry.
