The Chinese mobile baseband chip market is getting crowded: Broadcom (BRCM) says it's is working to build relationships with Chinese smartphone OEMs, including fast-growing ZTE (ZTCOY.PK), and is developing chips for phones that run on China Mobile's TD-SCDMA 3G network. Broadcom's moves will put the company into more direct competition with Spreadtrum (SPRD) and MediaTek, and open up a new area of competition with Qualcomm (QCOM) and Marvell (MRVL). (previous)
