Google should no use Qualcomm chipset for their Nexus series if they are committed to FOSS.

It was a sad day when ti said they are bailing on mobile chipsets. To and at the time Samsung chips were dev friendly

Michael H. I suggest you double-check those source links - you credited them to Droid Life but are really from Android Police - just a heads-up ;)

Qualcomm = World-class Reliable processors, with Apple-class patent holds and claims.
Nvidia = hated by everyone, but at least you can has cake and AOSP running, just sayin'

Nvidia isnt that bad IMO .. The tegra 3 has good performance actually and the tegra 4 is still to come.

Damned lawyers. if I were him I think I might've let it be leaked. Or, at least left an opening whereby a properly motivated snooper could stumble upon it.

maybe Google should get involved and work out a deal with Qualcomm. If the two Titans
( CEOs ) can talk without the scourge of the earth ( Lawyers Lol) then reasoning and logic would prevail

It is a fact that Qualcomm is one of the big companies that has more lawyers than engineers.
