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.

iOS is all about perfect experience. Not features.
That's how Amiga has been designed.
I have dual-core 1Ghz android2.1 device.


No you freaking don't, they haven't been released yet.

My Android phone has a 1 GHz processor and it's rarely laggy. Some web pages can make the keyboard lag, but funnily enough not even Flash causes it.

Where the Android phones really come into their own is that you can actually use them as a phone because you can usually get some sort of cellular signal. The iPhone might be a nice device but it's a terrible phone - American iPhone owners criticise AT&T for their "poor signal strength" but if you could buy iPhones on multiple carriers (like you can in most countries) you'd quickly see that the iPhone itself is terrible at actually picking up and maintaining a connection.

Now, my old Nokia E63 - *that* was an awesome phone. Boring as hell, runs on Symbian, very poor selection of apps; but you can go into the toilet in the basement of a high-rise and still make calls.

I'd love it if Nokia could release an Android phone, but when my current phone becomes fully obsolete I'll get one of Nokia's Meego-based mobiles. Because I like being contactable even when inside an EM-noisy shopping center.

I think, I know better what I have and what's not.
Toshiba AC100 was released a while ago.

"rarely" is enough for me. Sorry. I didn't ever experienced it on iPod Touch 4.

iPhone4 has a very sensitive antenna. My friends has no complains about it.
