On Monday, during Apple's fourth-quarter earnings conference call, CEO Steve Jobs spoke his mind about the rivalry between his company's iPhone and Google's Android mobile-phone platform. Careful not to mince words, Jobs flatly stated that he believes Apple's mobile approach is what's best for consumers. "When selling to users who want their devices to just work, we believe integrated will trump fragmented every time," he said, before predicting Apple's victory. "We are confident that it will triumph over Google's fragmented approach, no matter how many times Google tries to characterize it as open." And what about BlackBerry? According to Steve, he doesn't "see them catching us in the foreseeable future." If those aren't fighting words, we don't know what are. [NY Times]
