I saw a couple posts over on the Silicon Investor related to QCOM and Nokia and I'm surprised to see that no news has surfaced here. Well I guess I'll surface it here! Gol dang it!
I know Bruce Brown, Mike Buckley and Tinker frequent both boards but I'm not sure about the rest of you gorillaheads.
Two stories (or rumors, you decide). One is that it appears that Nokia may be trying to buy QCOM chips through a third party vendor and the other one being that QCOM and Nokia appear to be directly talking about "something". There's some....thing on the wing as Joe Kernen might say. Anyway here's some links to Silicon Investor.

If you have time, check these out. I think a stronger relationship between Nokia and QCOM is inevitable but it looks like it might be sooner rather than later. Nokia is much bigger news than China IMHO. I looked for these a little on the QCOM company board here at the Fool but I didn't see them there either. If this is a redundant post please pardon my ignorance. I really don't look at the company boards much. Too much cheerleading to wade through. I pretty much only read Gorilla Game, Le Union and Rat's board. Anyway.. enough about me. Anyone have the time to read those links and comment I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks

Well.. It's a lazy Saturday afternoon and I have nothing better to do than talk to myself. Actually I'm about to leave for the lovely coast of New Jersey. If you we're interested at all in my last post here's a few more. This one contains a great Buffalo Springfield lyric. No music so you will have to sing it yourself. Sorry.

Here's one that has a link to the previously mentioned Joe Kernen. There is indeed some.... thing on the wing.

Thanks for all of the links to the various press releases re NOK purchasing CDMA chips from QCOM for use in S. Korea. This makes much more sense than the rumor that NOK was interested in acquiring QCOM, though I still worry that QCOM may resume its downward spiral once that rumor goes away.

Ace,

Not to worry...the liklihood of QCOM resuming its downward spiral has decreased considerably since the middle of this past week.

That is when I went LONG on QCOM...

So...it has to do up now.

My thoughts exactly when I bought in at $143 this last January . . .

Yours in eternal hope,
Bill
