How do you help Apple battle against Android in today’s mobile market? Recruit the help of people familiar with the market today, as well as of yesterday? Someone who knows the inner workings of Apple and has since it’s inception? Perhaps. According to Reuters, Steve Wozniak mentioned that if he was asked to come back top Apple for a more proactive role, he would consider it. The Woz isn’t just any old fanboy of Apple either, he’s been quoted on record of his thoughts being admirable for Google Android OS, just maybe not how manufacturers deploy it within their devices.

So, is Steve Wozniak returning to Apple while Steve Jobs is away? Here’s what Reuters had to say;

My thinking is that Apple could be more open and not lose sales,” said Wozniak, but added: “I’m sure they’re making the right decisions for the right reasons for Apple.

Asked his opinion of Apple today, he said: “Unbelievable. The products, one after another, quality and hits.”

It’s hard to say if he would go back, he’s still active with Apple, and is on the payroll. That said, he wouldn’t be going back to fill in for Steve Jobs, that’s still Tim Cook. We could see him in the development rooms though, running projects, overseeing the processes of new product development. Time will tell, but for now….only the Woz would be able to tell us for sure.
