Intel the Underdog

As Intel enter the smartphone market with design wins at Motorola, Lenovo and China Unicom for x86 based applications processors they are up against the combined might of ARM licensees already entrenched in the market.

Whilst Qualcomm, TI, Broadcom, Nvidia, etc. are relatively small semiconductor suppliers compared with Intel overall their combined might and solid market position make them a formidable force to be reckoned with.

This battle is just one exciting development in the mobile device IC market that will make 2012 a very interesting year.
