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?
