TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Summit Forum, a major highlight of this year's Computex Taipei technology expo, took place yesterday, with a number of executives from the world's leading companies conducting dialogues.

Executives participating in the forum included Steve Mollenkopf, CEO of Qualcomm, Ian Drew, chief marketing officer at ARM, Ben Ho, chief marketing officer at HTC, and Arun Bhikshesvaran, head of marketing at Ericsson, in addition to Been-jon Woo ([...]), senior director and director of business development at TSMC, and Colley Hwang, president of DIGITIMES.

Qualcomm, due to its scale of economy, is well-positioned to continue with its leading edge in the industry by continued investments into research and development, said Mollenkopf. Most notably, the company's latest iteration of its renowned Snapdragon SoC solution will be compatible with Microsoft's Windows 8.1 operating system.
