Martin Cooper, the former vice president of Motorola and division manager who in 1970′s led the team to developed the first hand-held mobile phone, recently took some time to sit down with CNN and talk about his favorite subject: cell phones. Asking some general questions, the interview doesn’t get interesting (in an Android point of view) until the very end.
When asked which phones he is currently using, he named the original Motorola Droid. Interestingly enough (except for most around here), Cooper gave away his iPhone, an handed it off to his grandson. But he kept his Droid. Most notably, though, is the fact that Cooper said that Android is actually every bit as good, if not better, than the iPhone. Of course, we agree, but there’s tons of people out there that might question the man’s statement. We are right there with you, Mr. Cooper. And you can’t argue with the guy who made cell phones possible.[via CNN]
