Apple Q4 earnings call was expectedly pleasant for the Cupertino giant. They posted a record revenue of $20.34 billion and net quarterly profit of $4.31 billion with international sales accounting for 57 percent of the quarter’s revenue.
But despite Apple faring well financially and iPhones selling 91 percent more than the previous quarter, Steve Jobs couldn’t help but take a jab at Google’s Android OS.
Steve Jobs claims that Google’s way of pitching Android OS as open won’t work as it “fragments” the OS due to modifcations and customizations from various OEMs. Instead he lauded iPhone’s “integrated” approach and thinks “integrated will triumph fragmented every time.”
If that was not enough, Jobs further claimed that 7-inch tablets running Android OS will be DOA aka Dead on Arrival. His reasoning is that the screen is small to give consumers the required user experience, also confirming that iPad won’t be released with a smaller screen.
