Palm vs Apple

There’s no doubt in my mind that the Palm Pre is going to be a winner …. if they don’t get sued by Apple for patent infringement for the multi-touch BS that just went through. Engadget has a great analysis on the topic and shows how Apple actually borrowed a few tricks from Palm’s IP library … Should make for an a fascinating court case if it goes down. If the Pre does make it through without issue, it opens the door for others to implement multi-touch in a similar way … everyone could win.

    its all about $$$… who has more, and who can yell louder and sue longer. in the end, the end consumer always suffers. i do love my iPhone, but a little healthy competition (um, a device with cut and paste, the ability to record simple video, or send MMS) is always good for innovation.
