What draws my attention is that Atheron is a big package for Qualcomm, or so it seems because they have a broad product portfolio and Qualcomm only reminds me of mobile phones. Will Q' enter the power grid connectivity? or sell chips for laptops and netbooks? perhaps so by leveraging over the new acquisition. And... how about computing power? Isn't adding the Bluetooth and WiFi to the same SnapDragon chip asking a little too much to the same core? Well, I bet these guys know what their doing.
