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.

However that has nothing to do with iOS vs Android. There is nothing stopping HTC, Samsung or Motorola from saying you're only allowed to sell our phones if you leave them 'pure' and allow us to update the OS as we please. If their phone is desirable enough they might even manage to get a carrier or two to agree. However as long as people are happy to buy carrier crippled phones there is no incentive for HTC, Samsung or Motorola to make such a demand.
