Might prevent its own chip moves

A potential mega-merger between chipmaker Broadcom and Qualcomm is pretty unlikely to get much support from the Chinese authorities.

This week Qualcomm warned that the deal was never going to get the nod from anti-trust regulators and it seems that Chinese anti-trust lawyers agree.

For those who came in late Broadcom made an unsolicited bid to buy Qualcomm for $103 billion aimed at creating a $200-billion-plus behemoth.
