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 think Jobs' point was that... well you hold the iPhone like a phone and just use your thumbs. On larger devices you'd actually have to type and need reasonably sized buttons. I don't think he'd forget about the existence of iPhones.

Then 9.7" is too small for a touch keyboard. iPad is horrible for text input.
The fact is, that he has to paint anything not sold/developed by Apple as a bad thing, so that the stock price rises.
His job is just that - make sure that the stock price rises or if it stays the same then produce good dividends.
