Tony Fadell Walks Away From Schiller Story: ‘Not True’

Tony Fadell on Twitter:

I respect @pschiller as a colleague and friend. The story about him is not true. Have asked writer to correct the record.

That’s in response to a tweet from Schiller last night, after being asked if he really did push for a hardware keyboard on the iPhone:

Not true. Don’t believe everything you read…

The Verge excerpt can be corrected, obviously, but it’s a little late to correct a book that’s coming out in 6 days.

I’m not sure what Fadell is alleging here. That he was profoundly misquoted by Brian Merchant? Or that he was quoted accurately but that the story he told wasn’t true? Has to be one or the other.
