Steve Wozniak has always had wacky ideas when the rest of the world looks mute and dull. He created the personal computer as a kid when experts said it canâ€™t be done, remember? Although he isnâ€™t an active member of the Apple engineering family anymore, he still has lots to say about his beloved Cupertino.
Weâ€™ve heard that Steve is a fan of the Nokia Lumia smartphones, but Android? At Apps World North America he mentioned that he thinks Apple should consider building an Android phone so that the company could â€œplay in two areas at the same time.â€ Android is of course an open source operating system, so there is no reason why they couldnâ€™t. He added that â€œthereâ€™s nothing that would keep Apple out of the Android market as a secondary phone market.â€ He went on to say that people adore Appleâ€™s designs and the philosophy they bring to their products, therefore thereâ€™s no reason why they couldnâ€™t do the same thing with an Android device.
We would love to see Apple take a crack at Android. As we know them, they would probably build a better Android phone than most OEMs. It could actually be a good strategy, as it could be used to build a budget phone. Consumers (and us alike) have been yearning for a budget Apple device.
What do you think? Would Apple build a proper Android phone?
