Wozniak Didn’t Say ‘Android Will Be Dominant Smartphone Platform & Has More Features Than iOS’

Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak in an interview with De Telegraaf newspaper in the Netherlands said that “Android phones have more features and Google OS will be the dominant smartphone platform. That was the news of today. Being the co-founder of one of the leading tech company, how can he put a statement like this. An update is that Steve Wozniak did not say that. May be there was some misunderstanding or may be he is now trying to change the meanings of what he has said earlier. Woz spoke with Engadget to clear up the news that is floating around.

Engadget after clarification from Steve Wozniak posted:

Woz says he gave the De Telegraaf reporter a lengthy demonstration of voice commands on iOS and Android, pointed out that Android offered the ability to say “Navigate to Joe’s Diner,” and suggested that Apple would catch up through its purchases of Siri and Poly9. According to Steve, that’s about it — he says he’d “never” say that Android was better than iOS, and that “Almost every app I have is better on the iPhone.” Woz did say he lightly prognosticated that Android would become more popular “based on what I’ve read,” but that he expects Android “to be a lot like Windows… I’m not trying to put Android down, but I’m not suggesting it’s better than iOS by any stretch of the imagination. But it can get greater marketshare and still be crappy.” He’s not shy, that Woz — listen to him say it all for yourself after the break.”
