Well when you say that Qualcomm is done you really say CDMA is done too as they control all or most of that standard with their intellectual property. It isnâ€™t true at all so why say it? You think just because Broadcom comes out with another chip means the downfall for a company as powerful and massive as Qualcomm? They could buy out Broadcom is they want. Donâ€™t you think that when these chips come out for Broadcom, Qualcomm will be coming out with their own chips? By the way, the ban on the Qualcomm chips actually was stayed upon appeal. It allows for imports for Kyo, Moto, Samsung, Sanyo, T-mobile, LG, and AT&T. so far, Qualcomm isnâ€™t getting hurt. Worst comes to worst they focus on BRIC than this country. You actually want imports of Qualcomm chips because they control CDMA and HSPA. On Sept 21st, they raised their 4th quarter guidance. If they were having trouble, they would be lowering it. â€œQualcomm Inc. on Tuesday raised its profit forecast for the fourth quarter, citing higher-than-expected shipments of its chip sets for more advanced cellular phones,â€ and â€œThe company said its revised estimate is based on the shipment of about 67 million to 68 million Mobile Station Modem chips during the quarter, compared to its prior estimate of 65 million to 68 million units.â€ A yahoo source; http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/070925/qualcomm_outlo ok.html?.v=4
Again, that was a foolish statement then and another added now.
