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.

He's not saying you can't to a 7" touch interface. He's saying that They WON'T!!!
H'e said it before, success comes not in the products or ideas that you make/fulfil but the ones that you don't.

The 3.5" device is a smartphone, it's a very mobile device and you have to pay a price and make compromises for that mobility.
Considering that most people buying an iPad already have such a smartphone with them, it's pretty damn stupid to make a tablet that's only slightly larger in screen estate.
Making such a big compromise for a device that you're not carrying in your pocket all the time is nonsense. I've used both types of devices and the difference is massive.

It's good that people like you, people with boundaries in terms of imagination, could never work at a company like Apple.
It's why they keep on coming out with great and revolutionary products, because they don't employ people like you.
