This is quite impressive given the fact that mobile devices have 2 main things: processors and wireless components. Of course there are other stuff but Qualcomm seems to have the right strategy to dominate the most parts.

In fact, Qualcomm's better-than-Intel performance can be seen as the result of the competition between PC and mobile devices. In the future, the integration of notebook and tablets has been a certain trend. PC can not surpass tablets.

What technology does Qualcomm has?

@_hm, Qualcomm Incorporated is the world leader in 3G, 4G and next-generation wireless technologies. Much of the revenues they are earning is through the wireless patents they are currently holding. Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors is being used many smartphone OEM's like HTC, Nokia etc.

Qualcomm really rose in very less time. Earlier they used to have more focus on video chips.

With the rising number of wireless enabled devices with latest communication technologies such as LTE, quallcom will definitely become a top semiconductor company in next two years. All they need to do is to pull together more service providers to invest in the mobile netwrok infrastucture which would generate the revenue in future only after few years.

I think Qualcomm would do fine in the world, it's moving fast ahead of rivals in mobile business. One good reason - one of the few firms pushing mobile development in Africa region forward by participating in different events such as mobile applications for finance and health sectors  http://mobilewestafrica.com/2013/

Time will tell whether Qualcomm will be successful in saturating the world with its technology. 

@Tam, thanks for the post. I agree with your opinion. But Qualcomm is hardly facing any stiff competition from other companies. TI closed its wireless unit, Intel is not having any major wireless product/patent. Moreover since Qualcomm has very good patent position in 4G area. So I wont be surprised if Qualcomm successfully saturates the world with its technology.
