You are right on that especially with Intel put its feet rooted in semiconductor research area.

"I'm sure INTEL is regretting its bad move. "

That is what most analysts are thinking. But as Bolaji said, we can`t yet count INTEL out of the mobile microprocessor competition. They will surely fight back because they have the resources and I guess, the will to stay in the battle.

Well INTEL is VERY late to the mobile microprocessor party. And maybe because of that, ARM has gotten so much attention. Samsung and Apple have their own microprocessors, mainly because they have the economies of scale to do so.

I'm sure INTEL is regretting its bad move. Will it be the same superpower? I doubt it, but it will have a footprint in the mobile market.

I wouldn't underestimate Intel and I wouldn't underestimate the resolve of its rivals to keep the company off their turfs also.

@Wale,

I think that Intel has only ONE big serious competitor - AMD. Do the other small players count that much?

@Bolaji,

Hopefully the 30 percent chance of heavy clouds will not overshadow the (bright) sunny weather. The company will still do well in the PC business, but there are troubles ahead in the smartphones and tablets business.

Very possible, Nemos. Intel is a very large company and I would imagine they have the research and design capability to come up with very good mobile processors.

This is my weather forecast for Intel: Likely sunny with a smattering of rainstorm, high winds and 30 percent chance of continued heavy clouds.

Over the years nearly 95% of microprocessors are found in personal computers and laptops and 40% - 50% microcontrollers are in home applicances. Those PC/Laptop  markets have been largely shared by Intel and of course AMD ( faster and ruggedized) while home appliances are being powered by microcontrollers and until ARM became processing firmware for mobile phones ( multi-task phones). 

Today, 95% of processing firmware for mobile devices are not from Intel, and PC markets are struggling while tablet device is already line to take over role from laptop.

The industrial systems are being taking over by Microchip, Freescale, National Instruments, TI, and others. Dont forget - the much expecting field programmable gate array known as FPGA is in for nearly 90% of industrial, automotive and military. This, a domain for Xilinx and Altera.

Bright of course, I think Intel will "penetrate" in the mobile market as well and "steal" some space from ARM. So from Intel's perspective the future will be shiny.
