Woz gets a Galaxy Nexus straight from Google

Steve Wozniak has found the loophole in the system in order to get a Galaxy Nexus before it has even been given a proper release date in the USA: be an engineering genius who was in on the ground floor of the PC revolution...

Let me get this straight; The Woz wants a Nexus, he tweets about it Google (almost literally) rolls out the red carpet and forks one over BEFORE THEY EVEN ANNOUNCE A RELEASE DATE, But when the Woz looked at the 3G version of the iPad2 (1?) Apple went all Gestapo nuts and canned the guy who showed it to him and if memory serves it was going to be released in a few hours anyway. And the Woz was a co founder of Apple!

AND FYI I'm an apple fan AND an Android fan.

That\'s awesome. Woz is a great guy, small wonder that the Google guys were willing to help him out.

And yeah, I wish we had the Nexus. But hell, we don\'t even have a display for the Razr yet. I\'ve been taking to keeping the dummy phone in my shirt pocket so I don\'t have to run back to the cabinet if someone wants to see it.

if woz is thinking that android is better, I guess android is better than iPhone.

Nice. . . so apple's co-founder is actually open minded, makes sense since he's a tech lover. . .

that's good for him. Maybe he felt that iphone phones are too boring to use now. Or maybe next time he will buy also phones from Samsung Motorola HTC or even from Huawei. LOL

If Jobs was alive, maybe he'll get the Nexus ?
