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.

Yes one thing is for sure because almost all cell phone companies have put their own layer of customization on android 1.6 for them to migrate to 2.1 is not easy and quick. Customers have to wait until this layer is upgraded as well and this has become a blocker for many upgradations. Steve is right on this part. However I feel customers do have choice of installing vanilla android 2.1 directly on 1.6 also this was a good eye opener for companies. Now they can have a generic layer of own customization which from next time onwards can be quickly updated. Having said that there are no restrictions on companies to ship vanilla android.
