Qualcomm announced its fourth quarter earnings today and despite shipping more chips, earnings were down from the previous quarter. The main news from the earnings report is that the company is reporting net income of $1.89 billion on revenues of $6.69 billion. Revenues and income are both up year-over-year, but down from the previous quarter.
