Apple Co-Founder Predicts Android Will Usurp iPhone [latimesblogs.latimes.com]
Wozniak calls cellphone company Nokia a throwback from “a previous generation.”

Nokia, he said, came late to the touch screen game and now has “an image problem” that it needs to rectify with a fresh new brand and younger customer base.

Wozniak had sweeter words for Google’s Android phone, however, saying that the smartphone would likely edge out iPhone for market dominance.

Though Apple’s iPhone has “very few weaknesses” and is a leader in quality, he said, the Android has more features that appeal to a wider audience. Once Android works through its glitches, the operating system will surpass Apple’s, he said.

He backtracked a bit and said everything on iOS is better than android though :)

Woz isn't relevant anymore anyway.

He said everything is better on iOS currently, but that Android will eventually be equal to or better than iOS with many more options.

I suspect thats a hint to the iTechies at Apple to get developing, A bit of a "prove me wrong" statement.
