It remains to be seen if Windows Phone 7 can bring Nokia back from the dead, though if you ask Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak, Microsoft may have somehow managed to bring back Steve Jobs instead. We are assuming he’s joking, but those are still pretty strong praise of a once former rival. Based on the context, it sounds of it he was referring to how well Microsoft nailed the UI experience, which most people credit as the platforms strongest selling point. In a recent interview with The Verge, Woz declared that Windows Phone is like being “with a friend, not a tool”.
What a difference a last name makes. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs made it his mission to "destroy Android" even if it meant bankrupting Apple in order to do so. The other Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, doesn't spew the same venom towards Google's green machine as Jobs once did, and even wishes his beloved iPhone could do some of the same things as Android, or at least do certain things as well as the open source OS.
