Its going to be a few years before we have 128bit CPUs so I dont think Softwank will have any reason to flog off what they've got for a while. They can probably exploit what they have for 30 years or so without any real need to do any true development.

I have a feeling they will end up charging a bit more and just resting on the companies laurels. As a financial investment they've done well and the rest of us have lost a lot - especially the old shareholders who thought they were laughing all the way to the bank.
