    "Compelled to get the X55 accompanying it"

    Why don't they just stipulate it is a two part design if they are getting so hoity about it...or is it to prevent Mediatek or other 5G modem manufacturers being used along side their processor.

    I'm sure there are laws against that and with Qualcomms history...

    Re: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform announced

    I wonder if the article is a bit non specific and the actual wording is to the effect of "you can use it alone or with our modem only". I'd have thought they'd want to be not missing out the tablet market by saying that the two parts are required in one product.

    What they're doing is really anticompetitive really and forcing people to use their modem rather than letting the free market decide what is the best product. That makes me suspicious their modem isn't as good as it should be and so they're propping it up.

    It's fairly obvious why the two package design may have come about from an operational perspective but I think they're trying to have and eat cake here. I hope they have costed for the legal bills.

    Their modem is excellent, but this way it isn't cost effective for anyone else to try and enter the market if there is no-one to sell to.

    Ouch, no integrated 5G modem on the 865? That's another year I won't be "upgrading" to 5G then! (FYI Ars Technica has a great article on the issues with a separate 5G modem if you google "ars technica Don’t buy a 5G smartphone—at least, not for a while").
