The company is certainly not the CDMA maven of old that held out on joining the Wi-Fi Alliance for several years. (See Qualcomm's WLAN Shoe Drops .) Qualcomm now is taking much more of a broad-church approach to radio: Basically, you can have pretty much anything you want; it's just another module in a chipset.
Take a look at the firm's Gobi GSM-CDMA 3G laptop chipset as an example of this approach. (See 'Allo Gobi.) Hell, there's even talk of a silicon deal with Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) as a possibility.
