There are bound to be disputes over patent rights especially in the display aspect of mobile phones, and this is definitely a strategic move despite what might be said about it being an internal financial juggling. Michiel - http://www.discountdisplays.co.uk

Why don't HTC invest on processor instead of graphic chip. I don't think the graphic chip can help much on the gadgets that HTC makes. BTW, owning some rights on the components it use may be a good idea for big companies.

I don't understand investing in the graphic chip set when already all the processors are available with integrated graphics. I doubt if this acquisition really help HTC?

I wonder if HTC is looking to expand into the larger handheld markets? Using S3's graphics and an ARM processor could open the door to phone/mini-notebooks for example. Time will tell if this is just family book keeping or the tip of a major shift in HTC's product family.

GP IP is important, but the SoC developer or supplier would have to buy in.

HTC is definitely on roll and this will help them reduce cost in a sensitive area and continue to differentiate themselves.

This is no different from what Apple is doing. I don't see why not.

It seems like a stretch, they would have to break with Qualcomm.

exactly.. to me it looks like a very strategic acquisition to fend off apple's lawsuits. Also graphics processors will be a key element of all next gen mobile app processors. If they license an ARM Cortex A9/A15, they can start making their own app processors or even sell it like apple/samsung. Since now HTC shares are at all time high, they can simply sell some stock do this deal.

S3 just won a patent verdict against Apple. This will help them on the coming IP fight vs Apple.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
