P.S. to my last message. The other major perception factor is that Q claims that they will retain the same royalty rate irrespective of which version of 3G becomes standard.

It just doesn't seem likely. It all depends on how well the IP claims of other companies stand-up, but it does appear that W-CDMA or is it CDMA2000 or whichever one (I can't keep these acronyms straight) has a more diluted IP base. Result, it is unlikely, and not credible that a company which controls nearly 100% of current CDMA standard will be able to command the same royalty rate if it only holds 50% of the IP for the next standard.

I think this perception is also currently built into the stock price. And I, and no one else, has any definitive answers to any of these questions, and the Street hates uncertainty with a passion.
