Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had an interesting proposition for Apple, speaking at the Apps World North America conference. The Woz, an all around tech enthusiast who uses both iOS and Android devices, thinks a marriage between Apple and Google could be a perfect opportunity.
It is Wozniak’s thinking that given the choice between your typical Android device and one built to the same standard as the iPhone, users would find appeal in Apple’s device over the competition. It would provide Apple a channel to compete more directly with Android manufacturers while still retaining their iOS stronghold.
To be clear, Wozniak, who continually talked in terms of ‘we’ when referencing Apple despite not working for the company for some time, does not believe Cupertino must adopt this strategy or perish. It is merely the musing of an often eccentric tech advocate with little stake or voice in the matter. We have mixed feelings about an iPhone running Android ourselves, but we are interested to hear your thoughts and opinions. Sound off in the poll and comments below!
