Taiwan's MediaTek, a top-5 player in the baseband chip market, says it expects a 10% Q/Q revenue decline in Q1, due to weak demand for chips used in 2G "feature phones," many of which go to Chinese OEMs. MRVL and RFMD have already warned of similar weakness (I, II). Qualcomm (QCOM), which reports tomorrow and primarily sells 3G and 4G baseband chips, might be taking share.
