Motorola announced its intent to stop buying 3G chips from Qualcomm and use chips from Freescale Semiconductor and Texas Instruments in future phone designs instead.

Qualcomm is currently facing a number of legal issues which may have affected Motorola's decision, including the ITC 3G chip ban, and litigation from Nokia.
