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.

I don't know, could be that they have released higher expectations earlier?

It looked low to me too, but realising this is a the quarterly sale, it looks pretty okay, not insanely high, but not low either. According to the numbers here it is much smaller than the iPhone sales though, but then an iPad is a more limited device without a well-defined market or purpose yet. While there were a lot of tablet PC- or PDA-like devices before iPad, Apple are really trying to open a new market here, and than can take some time. Even if they don't succede in that I suspect these sales numbers are still making a profit.
