Ericsson ST move helps consolidate wireless chip makers

James Crawshaw

Infineon-ST wireless merger?

Nokia "still has to decide if the merging of the Infineon wireless efforts, which it had trusted as the main supplier for GSM components, with the supplier in ST that it trust its 3G chip to, makes it worth looking around for another chip supplier".

Maybe I am mis-reading this but IFX has not (yet) merged its wireless chip business with ST.

The fourth Nokia supplier is Broadcom. Maye BRCM and IFX will need to scale up to compete with ST-EMP. Any thoughts on who they might buy?
