RIM CEO blasts Apple: “people inside the distortion field will begin to resent being told half a story”
RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie has become the latest to speak out against Steve Jobs' tablet tirade, in which the Apple CEO dismissed 7-inch slates as unusable without first sandpapering your fingers down. In an open statement on RIM's site, Balsillie says that "7-inch tablets will actually be a big portion of the market" and suggests that's common knowledge "for those of us who live outside of Apple's distortion field." Meanwhile, he also suggests "many customers are getting tired of being told what to think by Apple."
