Qualcomm has issued a statement retracting remarks made by its Chief Marketing Officer who recently said the Apple 64-bit A7 processor is just a 'marketing gimmick', reports BGR.
Apple is a major customer of Qualcomm's and was likely very displeased with the CMO's remarks.
Here's the retraction:
“The comments made by Anand Chandrasekher, Qualcomm CMO, about 64-bit computing were inaccurate,” a Qualcomm spokesperson said in a statement delivered to BGR via email. “The mobile hardware and software ecosystem is already moving in the direction of 64-bit; and, the evolution to 64-bit brings desktop class capabilities and user experiences to mobile, as well as enabling mobile processors and software to run new classes of computing devices.”
