LTE is in the news for all the reasons. With so much drive behind the LTE for the mobiles, definitely LTE will be a promising technology to deliver the broad band speeds for the mobiles. How does Quallcom willbe able to integrate the LTE software defined stack into the CDMA baseband ASIC? What is the market growth for the Qullcomm in the area of LTE?

I think I said it before, acquisition of fables IC companies has been historically very difficult so I would not bet that the acquisition waive is coming...key people cash their stock options and leave...so it only makes sense if there is truly innovative technology left behind, which might be true in this case...Kris

This is the beginning of the new wave of acquisition and post recession consolidation. Congrats to Qualcomm. That seems to be a good one
