TI, NEC and Matsushita are in talks about pooling their plans for W-CDMA 3G phone chips.

According to Reuters, Matsushita, which owns the Panasonic brand, and NEC confirmed the talks today. The trio aims to get a factory building the parts up and running as early as the summer according to reports. The three will also collaborate on software.
