Sure took long enough, but it looks like Qualcomm is finally getting around to... uh, getting around to its pet project MVNO that's been on the back burner for the past year or so. The company's CEO says the delays in launching can be chalked up to the fact that it didn't want to be the primary investor in LifeComm; those issues have finally been fleshed out (read: there's money flowing in from other sources) and it'll be announcing a chief along with a concrete business model in September. Details are still exceedingly scarce on exactly what LifeComm intends to do, but it seems that it'll focus on providing specialized phones that help users manage health conditions and / or improve their well-being, and both enterprise environments and individuals will be targeted as potential customers. The MVNO debacle has stretched far and wide the past couple years, yes, but with a unique focus like this, Qualcomm could still have a breadwinner on its hands.
