Qualcomm (QCOM) says the 28nm baseband chip shortage that affected its June quarter guidance will be gone by year's end as contract manufacturer TSMC (TSM) ramps supply. That timetable could still result in some lost business for Qualcomm, particularly if the next iPhone (AAPL), which is expected to use a 28nm Qualcomm baseband, takes up a huge chunk of available supply.

    A very nice "problem" for QCOM. Having such a huge demand for your 28nm chips is way better than not have already sold the chips!!! QCOM's proven advanced technololgy is what the Apple's, Android's(Google), Samsung's ,etc. want for their smartphones, Ipads, tablets, etc going forward.

    The problem is due to low yields, so it's not good. Besides shortages and forcing customers to look elsewhere, it increases costs.
