Apple boss Steve Jobs spent five minutes pointing out the fragmented nature of Android OS devices during last nights financial call, this morning Google’s Andy Rubin has fired back with his first Tweet.

Naturally, Rubin uses the Tweet to cast some deeply-coded hocus on Steve Jobs’ claims, using Lingo to make a claim that Android actually is “open”. In the sense that device makers can do what they like, that is.

It’s like geeked-out name-calling isn’t it?

Jobs incidentally said that the iPad’s competitors were “dead on arrival” adding: “Even Google is telling tablet companies to wait for a new release of Android next year…What does it mean when software supplier says not to use software for tablets, and what does this mean when you ignore them and use it anyway?”
