Palm Pre vs. Apple iPhone: Palm steps back from patent battle
Apparently Palm isn’t prepared to do battle over patens with the Apple iPhone big boy. Word has it Ed Colligan, Palm’s chief said during a conference call that there are no pending legal actions with Apple concerning the Pal Pre.
Colligan also mentioned that Palm has amassed 1500 patens over the last 15 years and then went on to compare patent disputes to the animal kingdom basically saying it’s like two porcupines facing off each other.
While Tim Cook, acting chief of Apple states he wasn’t referring to any particular company when he said last month…”We will not stand to have our IP ripped off. We’ll use whatever weapons we have at our disposal.”
