My TMF friend,

"The majority of these terminals will be based on WCDMA
( 85 % ) and here QCOM has no more patent than Ericsson and Nokia !!"

100% WRONG!!!!!
Dr. Irwin Jacobs has clearly stated during conference calls,
that the settlement with ERICY nets QCOM the same royalty
payment no matter what version(flavor) of CDMA used by ERICY.

Thats why QCOM took off like a rocket last March-April.
Sometimes there are real reasons why stocks go up.
I know that this is hard for some to believe when it comes to QCOM.

sure is a nice day

Q envy causes many sane investors to thrash QCOM, but at least report the truth.
