Jobs lashes out at Android, RIM, tablets

David Chartier | Oct. 19, 2010
Steve Jobs doesn't usually make a guest appearance on Apple's post-earnings conference calls with analysts, but after Apple's first $20 billion quarter, he made an exception.

Jobs predicted that, in the end, "the current crop of seven-inch tablets are doing to be DOA" because they will ultimately "offer less for more" than the iPad. "Their manufacturers will learn the painful lesson that their tablets are too small, and increase the size next year, thereby abandoning both customers and developers who jumped on the seven-inch bandwagon with an orphan product. Sounds like lots of fun ahead."
