FTC, Qualcomm dig in for high-stakes antitrust trial

Introduction

Date: 10 January 2019. Duration: 12:02

The trial pitting the US Federal Trade Commission against cellular chip maker Qualcomm is underway in a federal courtroom in Silicon Valley. For three days the two sides have presented diametrically opposed viewpoints on Qualcomm's dominance in the modem chip market for high end wireless devices. The trial is less than halfway complete, and Qualcomm has yet to offer its own evidence, but there's still plenty to break down.
