Apple CEO Tim Cook typically has nothing nice to say about Android. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Apple’s head honcho gave his opinion on Google letting go of Motorola. He calls the deal “a logical transaction” because Google was not “committed to” doing anything with Motorola. Cook then said “it’s really hard to do hardware, software and services” as a single company; however, he claims this is “what makes Apple so special.” Cook fails to mention products like the Chromebook Pixel or Google Chromecast. And I’m quite sure Google has a decent amount of influence on the design of Nexus devices.
Then came the harshest of Cook’s comments. On the subject of the Android experience on tablets, Cook feels it “is so crappy because the app is nothing more than a stretched out smartphone app.” Had Tim Cook said this a few years ago, he would be right. But now with devices like the Nexus 7 (2013) becoming more mainstream and accessible, developers have definitely noticed Android tablets.
So there you have it. Tim Cook throwing some more fire at Google and Android. But hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
