Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Catfight! Get out your mobile phones and start filming, because two important personalities in the mobile world just got into a catfight. After the presentation of Apple's (once again) stellar quarterly results (what's with the low iPad sales, though?), Apple's CEO Steve Jobs went on a bit of a tangent regarding Android (among other things). Google's Andy Rubin, the father of Android, responded in a pretty fun way via Twitter.

Apple releases 1 device/year, HTC over a dozen, running on different platforms (winmo 6.5 now 7, Android, and they even have a Brew device). That said, I completely agree with you. I even think that it might be beneficial for them. It would certainly incur additional costs, but it would also make customers more loyal, which might be an important asset in such a highly competitive market. One positive thing about HTC though is that they are one of the more hacker friendly manufacturers, so at least we can do it ourselves. But as I said, I agree that it would be nice if they provided longer support.
