The big guy who co-founded Apple with the late Steve Jobs, Mr Steve Wozniak, has been telling aNewDomain just how much he loves – wait for it – Windows Phone.
There are lots of interesting quotes from Steve in the podcast. Here are some of our favourites.
“I'm just shocked [by Windows Phone], I haven't seen anything yet that isn't more beautiful than the other platforms.” Well, Windows Phone’s Metro UI is arguably more visually appealing than Android and plain old iOS, I guess.
Indeed, many of Wozniak’s comments concern Windows Phone’s looks. He continues: “The iPhone has a lot of beauty and simplicity, and you don't get lost as much in it, but it's more awkward to use.”
And my personal favourite: “It just makes me feel like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm more with a friend than I'm with a tool'."
The site implied that the Nokia Lumia was Wozniak’s favourite of the four – yes, four – phones that he carries (the others being a Motorola RAZR and iPhone 4S x2), however a comment at the bottom of the article later cleared that up.
Wozniak explained: “Wrong. iPhone is my favorite phone. I did give my opinion that the Windows 7P phone had superior visual appearance and operation cues that were also more attractive. In my opinion, it sets the mark for user interface.”
Ah well, a semi-endorsement from Steve Wozniak certainly can't do Windows Phone any harm.
