Walt Mossberg was able to get a moment with Steve Jobs immediately after Wednesday’s iPad event, and scored some great unscripted commentary from the Apple honcho on the iPad and its competition.

The interview portion starts at 1:55. Most impressive to me is how dismissive jobs is of the only clear advantages Kindle has right now. 10 hours of battery life versus a week on Kindle? Ptttthhhhppptt. “You’re not going to read for 10 hours.” And yes, he is talking to you, specifically. Kindle books currently priced five dollars less than iBooks? HA! “The prices will be the same,” although what that price will be and how that gap will be closed remain a mystery. But it’s been decreed, so there you go. [via Gizmodo: view video]
