Why QCOM is not a rule maker is simple. Ask this question. What have they done? Well to sum it up they were given the rights to a technology that the american government developed, and that we all happily paid for.

But what is next, QCOM will more than likely not be the ones who develop the next best thing that will replace CDMA. Come on now, $1000 target ( now $250 ), what a joke. CDMA is obviously the greatest thing right now, but how many companies are looking at those royalties and saying " boy we could really spend a lot on R&D and come out far ahead if we develop something better. IT will be a long time B$ that happens, but a long time in the tech world is a couple of years. They would need CDMA to be dominant for the next ten years for them to be worth what they are now and that is without any more appreciation.
