Apple founder Steve Wozniak has found himself in a bit of a fanboy brouhaha after this week suggesting that Apple should consider make an Android smartphone.
Speaking with WIRED at the Apps World North America conference in San Francisco, Woz said:
“There’s nothing that would keep Apple out of the Android market as a secondary phone market.
We could compete very well. People like the precious looks of stylings and manufacturing that we do in our product compared to the other Android offerings. We could play in two arenas at the same time.” – Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak
This is not the first time Wozniak has looked at Android as a viable platform; he told us nearly 4 years ago that Android will win at the end. He’s also advised that Android does things better than the iPhone.
Obviously this isn’t something that’s going to happen, but it’s fun to think of the potential device. Hardware as polished as Apple’s, paired with a platform as robust as Android sounds like a recipe for great things. While we’re somewhat keen on the idea, die-hard Apple fans are getting their knickers in a twist. Take a look at the comments in WIRED and you’ll see fun banter on all sides of the argument.
