Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, in a recent interview with A New Domain, says that Windows Phone apps are “much more beautiful” than those found on Android and iOS. Wozniak favors the Windows Phone over Android-based smartphones, but still thinks the iPhone is his number one choice.
Just for looks and beauty, I definitely favor the Windows 7 phone over Android.
I’m kind of shocked on every screen — much more beautiful than the same apps on Android and iPhone. So I think that what Microsoft or Nokia did is that they went to some of the key app makers and got them to deliberately make specialized beautiful ones or they put their own themes on. It’s all different.
In talking about the elegant design of the Windows Phone, Wozniak jokes that perhaps Steve Jobs was reincarnated at Microsoft and shared some of his great ideas from Apple. Do you think that Windows Phone smartphones, such as the highly touted Nokia Lumia 900, are true competitors with the iPhone?
