Speaking to Bloomberg, Dave Morin, Pathâ€™s chief executive officer said the company is â€œlikely to release an app next year for Microsoft phones, which run a newly revamped version of the companyâ€™s flagship mobile operating system.â€ That’s of course a code-name for Windows Phone 8.
â€œIâ€™m bullish on Windows Phone,â€ Morin said in an interview with reporters at a Bloomberg Newsmaker event in San Francisco. Microsoft CEO Steve â€œBallmer and those guys deserve huge credit.â€
Morin joins a list of high profile Windows Phone fans, including Appleâ€™s Steve Wozniak.
â€œLumia is probably the best-designed phone, besides the iPhone,â€ Morin said.
Morin said he expected Windows Phone to take market share from Googleâ€™s Android. Microsoft is poised to benefit from its partnership with Nokia, maker of the recently released Lumia, he said.
Path is a unique mobile-only social network which lets users post messages and photos to a tightly knit group of no more than 150 people. The network has around 3 million users at present, and despite its small size is very influential.
