Apple vs. Palm: War of words begins
Apple acting CEO Tim Cook, during Apple earnings conference, made it quite clear that Apple is prepared to defend their intellectual property by the use of any weapons at their disposal. This veiled threat is obviously aimed, although unnamed, at Palm and the Palm Pre.
The reason for this cloaked threat is due to the Palm Pre incorporating features such as a multi-touch UI which is found in the Apple iPhone. This is probably due to the Pre being spearheaded by ex-Apple head of hardware engineering Jon Rubenstein.
Palm however is not afraid of any blustering from the Apple ranks and will not be bullied by mere words from Apple and in fact has said if faced with legal action are quite capable of defending themselves.
Will we soon be seeing legal confrontation between Apple and Palm?
