Qualcomm is going to war against the iPhone, and its best weapon is a 20-year-old PDA
Many iPhone and Android users have no idea what a Palm Pre is, but they’ll soon learn more about that particular family of iPhone “killers” thanks to Qualcomm. Smartphone users who witnessed the mobile revolution the iPhone started will remember Palm OS devices, which at one point were regarded as excellent iPhone alternatives. And if they already purchased an iPhone X, then they already know there’s plenty of Palm Pre-like gestures in the new iPhone.
Qualcomm, however, will have none of that. As the owner of Palm’s intellectual property, Qualcomm wants to hold Apple accountable.
