Apple co-founder: Apple needs to make Android-based smartphones

During an interview with Wired, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said that the iPhone maker needs to build Android-based smartphones in order to boost its market share.


He added that the iPhone has the right amount of features and capabilities, and doesn't need the added innovations - that are sometimes gimmicky - that other smartphones have. Wozniak added: "There's nothing that would keep Apple out of the Android market as a secondary phone market. We could compete very well. People like the precious looks of styling and manufacturing that we do in our product compared to the other Android offerings. We could play in two arenas at the same time".

Apple could use Android on the iPhone, as it is an open source OS - it wouldn't be anywhere near as good as a pure Android device like the Nexus line of smartphones, but it would be an interesting path for Apple to take.
