[pivotCE]Qualcomm’s Palm Patents used in lawsuit against Apple over iPhone X

Recommended Posts


Qualcomm’s at it again.  Renowned for being a world-class patent troll, it’s once again suing Apple over…get this…using Palm Inc. patents it bought in 2014 in the iPhone X.

Their big hangup is that the iPhone X borrowed Palm’s user interface or more specifically the interface found on webOS phones like the Palm Pre.

Who hasn’t been saying the cards interface was stolen from webOS years ago when we first saw it popping up on Android devices? EVERYONE uses it. From Ubuntu Touch, iOS, Sailfish, BlackBerry 10, Windows Phone, and of course Android, they all use some styling of the cards for multitasking or rather task switching.

Their demands? Ban the iPhone X in the US among other things.

Yeah….right.  Good luck with that.

Whatever it is, Palm did it first and did it better.
