I mean, they have so much cash on hand that anything is possible, but most 'consumers' don't really have any idea who Intel is as a brand (more techie than anything) except for the commercials. So they have that uphill battle to deal with against the competition.

Perhaps we will see the actual products in a few months time. Intel needs to prove its worth this time.

Although Intel certainly has the money and muscle to make headway into any market it sets its mind to, it might struggle with a problem many big companies face: a lack of agility. It has already taken a long time to enter this market, and it's possible that ARM and Qualcomm, as smaller, specilaty companies, will be able to respond quickly and stay a step ahead.

_hm i agree with you on that.  But Intel has the capability to make market difficult for the likes of ARM and Qualcom. And besides, how would they cope or react to this?

Intel has no choice but to continue to grow in the personal computing business. With the huge amounts of cash and their sheer size, Intel needed to continue to pursue the market and find some OEM's willing to join them. I have no doubt Intel will suceed, as long as their are no flaws to their processors.

As of now ARM is a leading player in mobile chip market and the entry of Intel can make the competition tough. From customer point of view, we have a better option and selection because Intel as we know is superior in chip market with most of the core per processor and threads. So we can expect similar high end processor and multitasking chips from them. As of now the maximum computing power for ARM mobile chips are 1Ghz and it's a limitation for enterprise applications.

I see in the Times London that ARM share prices has taken a hefty hit on the news of Intel pushing into smart phones.

But Intel's specialty is not consumer-facing products, it's components. So how prepared may they be (even though they might think they are) to give the customers what they 'want'? You can throw alot of money & resources at it but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be a hit.

Dave, Exactly. How could Intel not go into the wireless market; how could it not keep knocking on OEM doors until somebody opened with a design win; how could it not keep trying to get the product right and; how could it leave the field to ARM? How indeed?

And with so much money to spend, Intel could afford to keep slugging away until it got just what the customer needed. Now, let's see if that's what it has or if it must still keep throwing money at it.

It is big question mark for Intel. It may not be Intel's product capability, but Intel's high profit margin requirement.
