If earlier reported remarks by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak damning iOS in comparison to Android seem out of character, it apparently is because the Dutch publication quoting him did so out of context and without a lack of misinterpretation. You see, Woz says he never said anything remotely close to the attributed words “Android phones have more features,” though he admitted he may have in an off-handed way said that Android would become a dominant phone platform.

But, no, don’t expect that statement to read like it does on the page. In a clarification for Engadget, Woz further stated, “I’m not trying to put Android down, but I’m not suggesting it’s better than iOS by any stretch of the imagination. But it can get greater marketshare and still be crappy.” The statement harkened to the current state of Windows — a platform that is clearly holding a great deal of market share but that Woz doesn’t seem personally keen on.

You can hear the man himself talk his way out of the corner over at the source link below.
