PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless ...and finally it pays off for OSNews to have a Dutch editor. Yes, I knew this glorious day would one day be upon us, the day upon which the rest of the technology world would be struggling with Google Translate to decipher a Dutch article with news in it. But not for OSNews, oh no! Anyway, Steve Wozniak, Apple founder and still technically an employee, gave an interview to a Dutch newspaper (the worst we have, but still) in which he made some interesting remarks. Update: Told you it's the worst newspaper we have.

Quickly following up on a Dutch interview, Steve Wozniak this afternoon said he was misquoted. The Apple co-founder said he believed virtually every app he used was "better on the iPhone." Android's main advantages were in its Voice Actions for navigation and other tasks, but Apple's acquisitions of Siri and Poly9 would solve these, he told Engadget.
He still believed from "what I'd read" that Android would still get the upper hand in market share, but Wozniak stressed that he didn't necessarily think it would be out of superiority. It could be "a lot like Windows" and gain the upper hand over Apple in share even when its competitor had a quality lead in at least the short term.

"I'm not trying to put Android down, but I'm not suggesting it's better than iOS by any stretch of the imagination," he said. "But it can get greater marketshare and still be crappy."
