I'm biased in this discussion but I would argue that Qualcomm has been badly abusing their position for years. I've seen competitive analysis reports where Qualcomms modems were beat on price, power and radio performance. Where they win is latest standards implementation, brand value but above all their aggressive patent strategy. Most OEMs just accept that it is simpler to buy Qualcomm chips, get the brand halo and avoid the patent hassle.
