Qualcomm has confirmed they are in talks with Apple to supply chips for use in the iPhone.

Chief Executive Officer Paul Jacobs said, “we continue to discuss it, but haven’t made it yet,” in a Bloomberg Television interview in Hong Kong today. “Hopefully, in the future, we will have the opportunity.”

The San Diego-based company is the world's largest maker of handset chips and already sells semiconductors for devices that use Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Mobile technology, and Google Inc.’s Android software.
