The article focuses on the challenges facing Paul Jacobs as the newly-appointed CEO of Qualcomm. Giant cellular telephone maker Nokia filed a broad antitrust complaint with the European Commission in October 2005 alleging that Qualcomm wrongly cuts its patent fees for handsetmakers that order chips from Qualcomm rather than from rivals. Intel is proposing a new wireless standard called Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (Wimax) that sidesteps cellular service and Qualcomm's patents. Qualcomm will launch its MediaFlo service in 2006, offering 15 live television channels and 40 channels of video-clips to carriers.
