Here is Qualcomm’s side in the FTC monopoly trial

Anyone who says Apple should not bother to develop its own modem chips after reading this has rocks for brains.
Apple has one third of the phone market in the advanced economies, the volume and costs alone dictate developing a modem, without Qualcomm’s actions.
Plus Apple has more money than God and few ways to invest such huge sums.

Most importantly Qualcomm did not understand how courts work with monopoly issues, Apple has run the table in international courts.
Any court that deprived its citizens of iPhone’s would suffer blowback, as the second German court may have decided to lift its finger to the wind.

Do not short Qualcomm, it’s like shorting Intel.
I expect Qualcomm to cave and sell modems again to Apple in two years or so, if Qualcomm keeps a competitive edge, Qualcomm has a lead in setting new modem standards. The iPhone X line will get the Qualcomm modems.
Due to favorable pricing from Intel we may not see Apple’s modem in phones for three years or more.
Apple’s modem will show up in the watch first, years before iPhone.

Anyone have alternate predictions?

Also I expect the iPhone X to stay the top tier and the second tier to hit 10 and 11.
