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.

The GalaxyTab hasn't hit the majors market yet (will launch in the US in November for instance). I saw a few unboxing videos however (one from Germany if I remember). No in depth review, but the first thing that was praised ... wait for it... was the screen! And the lightness of the device of course. Seeing the thing in hand gave me the impression that 7" is just perfect. Hell, 3.7 is not so bad actually for browsing (but never do it if anywhere near a PC of course).

I think this is one thing that Jobs will regret in the future. I do expect the GalaxyTab to be a success, there is a lot of excitement/expectation around it, and at least the build quality does not disappoint (I'm sure the UI won't either, I'm really really happy with Froyo and the GalaxyS is rather popular). Expect that remark to live on as people will quote Jobs every time the device passes a sales milestone.
