It is also hard for Marvell or anyone to make a profit when so much of the cell phone market is controlled by Samsung and Apple. Both push cost hard and require chips to be sold at near cost to win socket.

In the smartphone market, Marvell has to fight the two 800 pounds gorilla in China - MediaTek and Qualcomm. On top, there are quite a few local incumbants like Spreadtrum, Leadcore, CQCY, ... Plus, STE and Renesas are as aggressive as ever given their losses. These fights are only going to become more intensive. Given these, do Mavell have the staying power?

Marvell is simply reporting what others have been doing. From TI to ADI, these companies are showing that something is wrong with the global economy. We are in economic slump and that is the fact.

Possibly. Interesting to note that despite the growth in smartphones, Marvell cited lower sales volumes at RIM and slowing demand from two Chinese handset OEMs as dragging on its sales.

Marvell has designed good products for the smartphones, but still the sales in not showing increasing figures as compared to the sales of smartphones, this might be due to the reason of an affordability to the smartphone industries.
