But, Apple founder Steve Jobs think Android is a stolen product. Even Steve Jobs had vowed to dedicate his entire life until his last breath to destroy Android.

It is revealed in Steve Jobs biography written by former Time executive, Walter Isaacson.

This story began when Steve Jobs told to do with Google's top brass Eric Schmidt, who is also a former board of Apple's top brass from 2006 to 2009. Schmidt later resigned from Apple when Apple and Google with its Android market started competing in smartphone sales.

Isaacson writes, Steve Jobs was furious when HTC introduced its first Android-based phones in 2010. Moreover, Steve Jobs proudly know that Android was introduced as a product that turns out to use the same number of features with the iPhone.

"I would dedicate my life, until the last breath if necessary, and I would spend all cents from Apple's wealth at U.S. $ 40 billion in the bank, to fix this error," said Steve Jobs, Isaacson wrote in his biography.

"I will destroy the Android because it is a stolen product. I would start a nuclear war because of this," said Jobs.

In a meeting at a cafe in Palo Alto, California, Jobs then met with Eric Schmidt. But, this book tells, Jobs told Schmidt that he was not interested to file a lawsuit. The meeting was held with no results.

"I do not want your money. If you offer me U.S. $ 5 billion there, I do not want it. I have a lot of money. I want you to stop using our ideas on Android, that's what I want," said Jobs.

Steve Jobs later resigned as CEO of Apple on August 24, 2011. Six weeks after stepping down, Steve Jobs subsequently died from pancreatic cancer, which he founded.

However, until now Apple and Google do not have a legal case related to Android. Even so, Apple is still involved a number of cases due to legal dispute with Samsung, one of the largest smartphone manufacturer that uses the Android operating system. | MacRumors | Apple Insider
