Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I don't know much about SoftBank, but just be virtue of being an Asian company doesn't automatically imply that they are able to open new opportunities in the Asian market. If they had been taken over by an Asian chip maker with well established customer rapports and sales channels, this would be different.
Discussion of this industry may warrant a different thread altogether. Being owned by a chip maker would probably castle ARM products and limit its application. SoftBank appears to be going for an end-to-end continuity from chip design, devices, infrastructure, to applications. Its a holding company that tend to pick up companies like playing cards. Its yet to be seen how they will play out ARM, but they seem to see it as an ace in the hole that will be staying in the game.
