Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) continues to be in the news this week. In this video, Eric Bleeker looks at reports that Apple may use Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM  ) chipsets in the new low-cost iPhone.  Eric reviews the sometimes tense history between these two companies, and why it makes sense for Apple to use Qualcomm products.  Apple may also use Intel (NASDAQ: INTC  ) to manufacture processors, a decidedly more palatable choice than current manufacturer Samsung.  Will Intel go for it?  Good question.

    Intel would be Apple's foundrry IF Apple agrees to used Intel's Atom Haswell in upcoming products. They both have to be very, very careful to not trip over anti-trust issues as Intel does not want to become a general purpose ARMH foundry at the cost of their own chip products. Intel toally screwed themselves once before by using AMD as a second source foundry for the X86 chips, If Apple uses Intel for An foundry then they don't need Qualcomm.
