Qualcomm buying out Flarion

There is still much debate in the wireless industry over which new technologies being developed and tested will be widely adopted by the big cellphone companies. Intel, the chip maker, for instance, is putting its weight behind a technology widely referred to as WiMax, which differs from Flarion's technology. Qualcomm has been pushing its own CDMA-based methods and now, with Flarion, will have another choice to offer to customers.

"I think Qualcomm is trying to cover its bases," said Michael Cai, a wireless broadband analyst with Parks Associates.
