And who can forget the drop down notification system of Android that Apple, so called 'the innovator', was compelled to implement in iOS, of course with some little amendments!

I don't like itunes, otherwise I'd probably have an iPhone. Then again I really love screens that are 4-5 inches.

Nokia 900? I don't know. But I do want to play with one. I mean, it looks great and I hear good things about Windows Phone.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my Android, quite a bit.

If Apple or Microsoft got smart they could win me over. It's looking like ICS isn't fully baked yet.

Maybe it was Opposite Day when he said that? Or maybe he wasn't thinking straight.

or maybe he just can tell that android is a good OS too, and simple with time has become better unlike some haters here that still call it android 1.0

Woz is tech, not marketing. To retain his (considerable!) cred in that area, he can't just be an Apple mouthpiece.

I think you're the ONE THAT'S NOT THINKING STRAIGHT. Woz is a TECH GEEK likes all TECH not just Apple.

Woz is a lover of technology and isn't blinded by the "magic" that Jobs said Apple's products had

Unlike YOU The_Miz. Woz knows software and hardware. He says "dislikes it being connected to Apple’s backend servers", Siri can’t connect, robbing him of simple voice controls like asking the phone to dial his wife. He says the voice controls on Android never have this problem, since they control the phone without having to contract a server. He also indicated that voice search on Android now returns better results than Siri does. Learn to GROW THE FCK UP

The only advantage the Nexus has over the Razr is ICS, which wont' be a factor in a few months. I also don't mind the hardware buttons. (I seriously want the Razr, lol. I want I want I want)

I think the Nexus phones are trash, but I'll take those over any Motorola phone any day and that's a fact because Motorola phones are horrible.

And once again you make a statement without justification. What was the last Motorola phone and when?

His justification is "I hate Motorola cuz they stole the logo of McDonalds, my most favorite restaurant!!!!"

I think YOU ARE TRASH and you talk too damn much. Motorola is slightly better and thinner than the iPhone.

DUHHH!!! And I'm an iOS guy. Apple needs to get their stuff together,cuz all the upcoming phones I want (galaxy note,galaxy S3,and skyrocket HD are android devices).
I'm waiting to see what the iPhone 6 is like,but I'm not excited. I have the iPhone 5 now,its called the 4S.

Later PA will post a article saying he never said these things, Just like before in the past by other corps who like androids features. Somebody high up will be like WTH, then they say 'I never said such things ' and blah blah blah.
