i share your wonder. Intel did admit that they have alot of chatching up to do, and i think they are up to the task.

One thing is sure, they are not ignoring the smartphone/tablet market. it would be suicide to do so.

Intel has done a remarkable job keeping their business plans going, even with the recession, and their Q3 numbers show this. Eventually tablets and smartphones are going to erode sales, and this will have an effect on Intel. I am sure Intel already has a game plan and is not going to ignore these vital markets.

Intel could claim its place in the smart phone and tablet market.

@TIOLUWA, I agree with you but still its surprising to know why Intel took so much time to foray into smartphone business. It would be interesting to compare performance of Intel architecture and ARM architecture.

They would be foolish to ignore the smartphone anf tablet market, and I an sure they won't. It sounds like Intel has a solid business plan, and can position themselves for changes in the market.

With notebook shipment continuing to rise, it's obvious PCs will for now continue to co-exist with tablets and other smaller-form computing devices rather than fade away as demand soar for competing products

@Bolaji, dont you think this is temporary phenomenon ? Usage of notebook shipment will gradually decrease because people will start using smartphones/tablets. I think that is the reason why HP is planning to sell its PC business. So it would be better for the Intel to not to expect much from PC sales in future.

Really the smartphone and tablet market can pose a problem for intel, but i think they are not taking chances with this.

Intel is already taking its place, introducing its first intel andriod tablet last month running on intel's midfield atom chip designed for smart phones and tablets.

the new windows 8 tablet also boasts an intel or AMD core, not the generally used ARM core for smart phones and tablets.

So i think in the near future, Intel could claim its place in the smart phone and tablet market.
