| The chipset uses an ARM application processor so it can’t run Windows 
| applications, but like Linux-based netbooks, Kayak devices could run existing 
| productivity suites and support some Office file formats. “Long-term we would 
| welcome the opportunity to port any of the Windows applications and we’ve had   
| numerous discussions with Microsoft on this, but we don’t have anything to 
| announce at this point,” CEO Dr. Paul Jacobs said at the meeting today. He 
| added that Qualcomm has worked with Adobe to support Flash applications on 
| Brew, which should make it easier to quickly develop applications.

| Qualcomm. The company hopes to make a big bang with Snapdragon-based devices

Qualcomm: Interview with a cellular vampire

| CEO Paul Jacobs, in his opening address to the collected mass ranks of US and
| European analysts, turned this image on its head – expressing his “palpable
| relief” that the Nokia patents dispute had been resolved – and on terms that
| will not wreck the greater part of Qualcomm’s profits – those through royalty
| payments, and talked about having been smashed around for the past three
| years, and that now that it was over, the settlement driving huge positive
| momentum for his company.

| Jacobs added: “We are not quite so worried about that action since we have
| workarounds for the Broadcom patents which are already in chips, and that
| give us negotiating leverage. We have worked through multiple decision trees
| on the outcomes of that legal action and although we’d like to see it
| resolved, whichever way its goes it will not have as great an effect as the
| Nokia action.”

| Hope is not lost, as Qualcomm released the software to open-source
