Intel Corporation Research Report

Intel has announced it will be buying the core service of HTML5 mobile-app development firm appMobi, but only its tools and related staff and not the entire startup itself. The move is part of the semiconductor giant's bid to enter the mobile application developer tools market. Meanwhile appMobi will become a pure play cloud services provider, offering developers backend services support for HTML5 mobile applications instead. The HTML5 tools Intel acquired include the jqMobi framework, which connects mobile app developers with a mobile-ready version of JQuery, as well as other appMobi frameworks XDK IDE, GameDev XDK, PhoneGap XDK and jqUI. Also included are the directCanvas HTML5 acceleration tool and the Mobius web browser. According to ReadWrite, developers currently using the tools will not be affected by the move to Intel save for a one-time re-registration to Intel's systems. The tools will continue to be free to use with Intel.

NVIDIA Corporation Research Report

Nvidia has found its biggest customer to date with its recently announced Tegra 4 chips, Chinese handset and equipment manufacturer ZTE, who will be making a smartphone using the new processor and another phone using the company's i500 LTE modem. The new handset is set to come out in the first half of this year. The processing power of the higher-end Tegra 4 and the lower-cost Tegra 4i both supports full HD video playback on a 5-inch screen, in a smaller 28 nanometer process node which consumes less power. Meanwhile, Nvidia met expectations on revenues and beat expectations on earnings per share in its Q4 financial report released last week, and forecast optimistic numbers in the wake of the new chips. It reported revenue of $1.11 billion while earnings per share were at 35 cents. Analysts expected revenues at $1.10 billion while earnings per share of 29 cents. The Street upgraded the stock to a "buy" from "hold," as a result.

QUALCOMM Incorporated Research Report

Qualcomm released a new range of radio phone chips for mobile cellular networks this week, increasing competition for other players in the segment. The chips, called RF360, will be addressing the headache of smartphone manufacturers that is band fragmentation, enabling smartphones to connect to all seven of the world's cellular modes: LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, WCDMA, EV-DO, CDMA 1x, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE. It also translates to improved radio performance and coverage, and possibly fewer voice dropouts and lost calls. In addition, the need for smartphone manufacturers to produce multiple versions of their smartphones to support multiple carrier frequencies will be eliminated, potentially cutting costs and logistics and increasing margins.  The Full Research Report on QUALCOMM Incorporated - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.investors-alliance.com/r/full_research_report/f231_QCOM]
