Broadcom + Qualcomm = BroadQual? or QualBroad or ComComm?

SD835 only small improvement over SD820,
Sd810 total failure, SD808, 820 slight better but not the quality user expect from the hi price we pay. Qualcom not worth that much

Well that would make it a third Mammoth on the stage & wouldn't mind much regarding it's mean reputation & could actually show good for CAF as last open resource.

Apple is the purchaser i.e the buyer of product. It is Apples assertion that the price Apple is purchasing is too high.
Either Apple is right and pays a price from a set point in time, Qualcomm will still receive a lower revenue from a set point.... Or Qualcomm maintains the same price

Secondly Apple intentionally? shared Qualcomm "source codes" with Intel Qualcomms rival.
Intel do not have a presence in the mobile industry....

If Apple wanted to break free of Qualcomm having Intel build you chips, having a rival Intel to do this seems to be the best way but it is one that if proven will cost Apple millions.
Qualcomm would also look for an injunction to prevent Intel from effectively copying

Samsung might step in and overtake Qualcomm,as they always seem to work with Qualcomm to get the Best Android Chips before anyone else does,like the 845 chips for the future Galaxy S9 models

Qualcomm's stupid CEO started an unwinnable fight against Apple that left stock crashing from $69 to $49 and Broadcom coming in and buy out the company. This is textbook example of mismanagement
