Now, it is my pleasure to introduce QUALCOMM's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Paul Jacobs.

Dr. Paul E. Jacobs - Chairman and CEO: Thanks Warren, and good afternoon, everyone. We're obviously off to an excellent start in fiscal 2013 and pleased to report a record quarter driven by strong year-over-year growth in both our QCT and QTL businesses.

Revenues were up 29% and non-GAAP earnings per share were up 30% compared to a year ago. In QCT we delivered record chipset volumes which included eliminating the constrain on 28 nanometer devices as we had expected.

In addition QCT continues to drive technology and product leadership as we announced the new QUALCOMM Snapdrago 800 and 600 processors. Featuring ultra-high definition video playback and capture and our latest generation microarchitecture with clock speed up to 2.3 gigahertz per core the 800 processor is class leading and we continue to set the bar for the smartphone user experience.

Turning to QTL, our licensees reported stronger than expected total reported device sales, as the broad-based adoption of 3G and 3G/4G products continues, driven by strength in smartphones. We continue to invest and innovate across a broad set of technologies, and believe that our patent portfolio applicable to 3G and 4G products is the most widely licensed in the industry. In fact, we have now over 225 CDMA licensees and more than 40 royalty-bearing single mode OFDMA licensees.
