(press release distribution) CUPERTINO, USA (DPA): Steve Jobs called unstable mobile operating system that Google promotes, “Open platforms do not always win,” said the executive, saying that competition is fragmented and complex platform. The submission of record earnings , Apple CEO Steve Jobs blasted with unusual power against competitors, especially Google, without mincing words.
Also, Jobs dismissed the tablets of the competition, which has a screen smaller than the iPad. The message is clear: it does not come from Apple does not work. The Lord of the iPhones, iPods and Mac computers made a rare appearance to announce record figures for the company in the last quarter, and initiated a verbal battle against Blackberry, Microsoft and Nokia. “Manufacturers will have to learn a hard lesson,” he said Jobs.
Above all, it took time to criticize the Android mobile operating system from Google , the iPhone’s current main competitor. Android is a counterproposal to the proposal to Apple: open and available to any device, but more confusing and sometimes uncontrolled growth somewhat. Apple in turn keeps the greatest possible control over your operating system-used iOS iPhones, and iPods Touch iPads. The idea is that there are few other devices, the same concept of use and a manufacturer. In the case of Android different manufacturers involved, there smartphones of all kinds and with different shapes and size of screen, keyboard or not.

Mobile phones with Android beat the iPhone in the second quarter, Jobs acknowledged, and perhaps in the second. But the price for it is “a platform that is very, very fragmented,” so he thinks that the environment is better iOS. Consumers want devices “that work easily” and software developers are happy because Apple require less effort, he said. As a negative example of competition, Jobs cited the difficulties of the software developer for Twitter, TweetDeck, which needed to manufacture more than 100 slightly different versions for Android, to be adapted to 244 different versions. “Open systems do not always win,” he said Jobs.
The Apple boss was particularly hard on the tablets of competition, of which many have Android. Future devices with a seven-inch screen are “too big to compete with the smartphone and too small to cope with the iPad” said Jobs. Convinced that Apple is ten inches is the minimum iPad to develop good programs on a computer with these characteristics. But why this verbal attack? A Apple has never been better than now, and earnings reached a record of 4300 million in the third quarter. No other technology company is worth more now that the Cupertino firm.
