Martin Cooper

When we saw Martin Cooper -- the inventor of the cell phone, by the way -- on C-SPAN in March, he was telling us how he gave up his iPhone for the Motorola Droid. Fast forward to today, and he's continuing his praises of everybody's favorite smartphone operating system, this time in a Q&A with CNN. Much of it has to do with his influence on the cell phone industry, but it's the final quote that has the zinger:

"I think that the Android phones are catching up now, and the latest version of the Android phones are every bit as good, if not better, than the iPhone."

We couldn't agree more, Marty. And the numbers certainly are showing that. (By the way, you can follow the 88-year-old Mr. Cooper on Twitter at @martymobile.) [CNN] Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
