    The recent ban of Qualcomm Chips in the U.S has delayed the release of the Motorola Razr 2 for Alltel. The ban will also raise the price of the phone and other phones soon to be released using this chip. Verizon Wireless uses the chip in 80% of their phones which means their phones and service will increase in price heavily. Sprint-Nextel also uses alot of these chips and will be affected. The Qualcomm Ban will not affect new phones already in the U.S so new phones and previous phones already here are not affected, Just the new phones too come like the Moto Razr 2.

    I wonder how much of this is propaganda from Qualcomm?

    Broadcomm said they were willing to work a licensing agreement with Qualcomm on the chips & I am sure it would work out to a minimal price per chip, just like Qualcomm charges for their chips in other countries.
