I agree there's no doubt Apple WAS doing their own modem. The question is, after this deal with Qualcomm, is that still true? If they got a good enough deal, maybe they won't think it is worth it any longer. I think they still should no matter what, though if they got a good deal it wouldn't be quite as urgent a project.

We will probably know fairly soon, depending on whether the job openings at Apple suddenly dry up. If they are going to continue with it, presumably they will talk to Intel about buying all their cellular IP. They will definitely need a big war chest of patents for when Qualcomm inevitably sues them when they start using their own modem!
