It will very interesting what really means for Intel forecast close to reality, how many percentage points off will be close to reality in a multi-billion company.
I flu from SFO to ShangHai next to one on the VP of mother-board development & research, after some conversation he explain to me even though Intel is very strong, they have to "move their chesse" of a different core bussines and they have to do it soon.
Does intel have flare for chips in mobile technology? I think the question is not whether Intel can emerge and do better in mobile tech but is there a need to be involved. Intel may remain as an expert in its current product lines while analyzing the market for mobile technology. One thing is sure: Intel has potential to become a cutting edge if it chose to.
Amid the speculations of ARM architecture eating the slice of Intel processors in the desktop market and Intel's no admit into the mobile phones still Intel is beating the expectations all the time. Their investments in Atrom and the advanced architectures like sandy bridge is giving them an edge in the industrial computing market.
It is just a matter of time with Intel for the company to emerge in the mobile tech and tablet. Intel had been a reliable hardware leader in computer chips. Because of the company's credibility, it will be a great attempt if the company can make an impact in the mobile and tablet technology. Someone like me will jump at it.
What happened in the market is in line with analysis you have summarized, then maybe it is necessary a more prudent approach before to state Intel is going to take a leadership also on mobile. Perhaps it could happen, but not shortly, isn'it?
Intel normally known for the processors used in personal computers as well as in servers, but had not reported a major break through for chips utilized in mobile phones and other related portable devices.The firm, which designs and manufactures computing and communications components, was confronted a tough competition from ARM Holdings. ARM based processors were widely used in Smartphones and other related small devices because of their low power consumption.
Tirlapur, at Home/Personal Computer time, Wintel has striked the market and only in the long terms tech alternatives came trying to balance the situation in a trade off PC-Intel and PC-compatible. Do you think similar scenario will happen also in mobile market?
I agree that Intel has to make a strong impact in the mobile and tablets market if it wants to continue being the hardware leader in computer chips. I think Intel will be successful if it enters in those markets and will be able to en-cash on the brand name.
I totally agree with you Dave. Definitely Intel will emerge as the leader in mobile space as well soon. Moreover mobile space is chaning so drastically that no body can dominate it for too long . Intel has money power and resource power to easily dominate mobile arena.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
