Isnt it a bit delayed action to take where many companies such as NXP, Infineon, onsemi(motorola) are either out of business or made up joint ventures. Mobile products are getting more and more specified, need to combine many functions into same chip is arduous, and costly. Now either u should be giant to cover R&D and foundery costs, or fabless R&D focused start up. Not to forget intel is in the game also. Fairchilds power semis are brilliant, why they dont focus more on electrical vehicles? Need for efficient and reliable power chips are higher than ever...

Itis very important for the bigger companies to think strategically on the product lines. This could also benefit the OEM's in bigger way to come out fast into the market. In the mobil phone segment, I think there is still lot to come in terms of the new products coming out with more integrated fetures for the user interface functions. This also includes the tacticle feedback for the touch screen use and other voice activated and key tocuh activated processing devices.
