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.

Samsung, Dell etc. are forced into 7inch screens because they can't afford the 10inch ones (both in terms of price and battery juice) or there's simply not enough of them because Apple is hogging up all the supplies.

Actually Samsung is one of the top LCD producers in the world, maybe the top one. I doubt they can't afford it or that their supply is low compared to Apple.

Apple made a massive investment in Samsung years ago and in return they get a major chunk of the supply; its a win-win situation for both companies. Samsung's capacity increases along with a dedicated customer and they can also supply themselves off the back of the increased capacity.

Actually Apple gets its LCD display for the iPad from LG. Samsung is providing the memory and the A4 processor.
