I find the purchase interesting in that it is in the wireless arena, but I was wondering how this fits into the bigger picture. What is the intel on Unigroup and their product line? I was wondering how this acquisition fits into their product offerings or plans. Does anyone have the background on the company to add?

I am surprised to see that Spreadtrum has quite a good profit margin. Was thinking they are running on super thin margins by driving the costs downhill. Seems like there's not much competition at the low end these days. https://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ%3ASPRD&fstype=ii&ei=m7jLUbDDDsjrlAW4qgE

Having an IC subsidiary has been proven wrong in the past. See Moto, Siemens, Philips. Buying an openly traded firm from a state-owned company is even worse. Don't kill the rising star.
