Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Receives The Galaxy Nexus Before You

Apple co-founder Steve ‘The Woz’ Wozniak stopped by the Googleplex and walked away with a Galaxy Nexus and an Ice Cream Sandwich t-shirt. Yes the man who founded Apple with Steve Jobs is currently playing with a brand spanking new Galaxy Nexus – I will let you take that in for a moment.

Ironically, Woz usually waits until release day for the newest iPhone device and tends to Segway to the front of the line. However, he is receiving a device many people want, even before it is officially announced (stateside at least). This says a lot about Android and Ice Cream Sandwich, only furthering our anticipation for the actual release of the Galaxy Nexus. Lastly I am left wondering how Steve Jobs would have felt about this? Try to keep it classy and sound off in the comments below.

    I think its a huge compliment that a competitor would take interest in our beloved Android platform. The fanboys are not reflective of the typical Mac crowd who will give credit where its due. I think ICS is definitely going to surpass anything Apple OS has to offer. While I think Mac still dominates home computing, Google has officially taken over the cell phone domain. I hope Woz enjoys the unit and I can’t wait to get mine!

  • I’m not surprised. It’s better to know your rivals.

    Woz has always had an android phone and an iPhone. I’m pretty sure he has said that he had the G1. He just like to be up to date on tech and he realize that competition can only improve quality. 

  • Surprised to see him without a binder. He usually pays in 2 dollar bills all in uncut sheets big enough to fit in a 3 ring binder.

    call it a pub stunt or whatever……..that speaks volumes for android and the down to earth personality of the Woz……..it is shattering it is – a te chie getting his or her hands on the newest by any means necessary! lol

    Why should anybody be bothered by this or any other persons opinion on what piece of tech they purchase/own/use? Fueling the bitching, moaning, and insulting of people for what they choose to use or what they believe is better than something else is precisely why neither camp’s followers ever really impress me. I think it’s non news that Woz has a nexus, other than it’s cool that he got it early. This guy is awesome and also has done more for current tech than most people will do in a lifetime. Even if it wasn’t him though, I don’t think all the bashing from both sides is respectable. I also don’t see it in real life from anybody whose balls have actually dropped so it’s more forum fodder than anything else. I’m close to trading my tunda bow failure in on an iPhone, and when another phone comes out that makes me swoon more, no matter who makes it, I’ll get that one too. Tech is tech, and the mere fact that one would have to suggest to a group to “keep it clean” is testament to the pure unadulaterated evidence of what’s wrong with us today. People are suffering and we’re bitching about who makes the best phone when it’s purely subjective.

    If I remember right The Woz has been using other systems along with his I-phone for some time now.
