I'm disappointed by this news because Intel was the only mobile modem manufacturer who was competitive (or nearly competitive) to Qualcomm in North America. Without Samsung, without Chinese OEMs, Qualcomm is unfettered in its monopoly here.

Mediatek isn't far behind. If they were to put actual decent CPU's in their SoC's (which is just a matter of licensing - switching out one ARM CPU for another isn't too hard), I think they could take a big share of Qualcomm's market.
