“CANADA’S Research In Motion has fired back at Apple’s Steve Jobs over his claims that the iPhone is outselling the Blackberry and that 7-inch tablet computers have no future.
“We think many customers are getting tired of being told what to think by Apple,” RIM co-chief executive Jim Balsillie said in a blog post responding to the comments made on Monday by Jobs.
Jobs, speaking to financial analysts during a conference call, dismissed 7-inch tablets as “tweeners” saying they were “too big to compete with a smartphone and too small to compete with an iPad”.
He suggested makers of 7-inch screens “include sandpaper so users can sand down their fingers” to be able to tap onscreen keys”.
