Broadcom Corporation Looking Into Femtocell Percello

Shares of Broadcom Corporation were up sharply after hours Tuesday night as they reported better than expected forecasts for Q4 earnings.

Such an acquisition will enable Broadcom to lower costs of materials and provide better quality of service to mobile cell phone users.
