The Mobile Profit Play You Can't Ignore
The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.
In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric look at a mobile profit play you can't ignore: emerging-market growth. Recent earnings from Qualcomm highlight the explosive opportunity present, with the company projecting 1.5 billion new 3G devices coming online in emerging markets through the next four years.
