Holding most of the patent of a positioning, connectivity and application-specific functionality on a single chip will make monopoly of U-Blox in the segment. Very good strategy from the U-Blox Management.

Also interesting that 4M Wireless had a very similar strategy to that of TTP in the 3G generation. It amazes me that 4M Wireless was only valued at $9 million, while Cognovo was valued at $16.5 million. 4M Wireless ought to have a revenue stream from Intel pending while we don't know of any Cognovo design wins.
