Wozniak says Nexus One pick was wrong
Apple's co-creator, Steve Wozniak, corrected himself in a comment late Friday about his claimed preference for the Nexus One. He now says that he mistakenly thought the question referred to new devices he'd been using at the time and maintains that his two iPhones are still his favorites. Google's Android flagship is simply considered one of the better devices of recent memory.
"I am not a switcher but I'm not going to tell people that the Nexus One is not a good gadget. Same for the Droid," Wozniak explained to Gizmodo readers. "I have had prior Android phones that I didn't consider good. I usually have between 2 and 6 different cell phones on me, more when there are interesting product introductions."
The early Apple employee is often known as one of the most ardent iPhone fans and has been known to queue up at retail stores for iPhone launches even though he has been offered free units by fellow founder Steve Jobs. Typically, he has described it as embracing the community and wanting to be on the same level as fans.
