What Jobs Said About What TweetDeck Said

Interesting that Steve Jobs went on a tirade about Google in yesterdays earnings call. He mentioned about “Twitterdeck” (apparently referencing Tweetdeck) and their Android app, which they revealed a pretty amazing array of hardware configurations they tested against as part of their beta program.

Jobs was apparently trying to say that the fragmentation of Android (which is a legitimate issue) is bad for developers and users alike.

Here’s the full quote from TweetDeck, it’s a little less damning in their words:

We were really shocked to see the number of custom roms, crazy phones and general level of customization/hackalicious nature of Android. From our perspective it’s pretty cool to have our app work on such a wide variety of devices and Android OS variations.
