The smartphone market seems to be maturing.  Intel is entering at a time when implementing existing functionality at a competitive price is preferable to introducing new features.

Intel has very good quest for mobile market and has worked hard to reach there. It will be interesting to see how their powerful marketing force will try to turn the table from ARM. What unique thing will they offer to OE and customer? Will it be low power, hgiher performance, lower cost, new technology or all of them?

But Intel should not loose their focus from their main market. ARM is also trying for that market.

I agree with you Nemos. The word "embedded" has fragmented high -tech market to pieces, thereby allowing openessnes where each of Intel & ARM can gather as many. Embedded market opportunities set to get broader,  though smartphone is a high end sector with huge demand of processors required.

The announcement by Intel it sounds very promising and of course the way into the mobile market will be like a walk for Intel. It is enough space for both companies (Intel ,ARM) to coexist also.

Intel set to test ARM

As well as ARM is doing, I'd hate for Intel to be breathing down my neck in my marekt. After prepping for a decade, I'm sure Intel's products targeted at smartphones will be excellent. Maybe not the best, but pretty darn good. ARM is extending its market by adding distributors which will help more design-wins. But as Bolaji says, don't bet against Intel.

Yes competition will surely heat up. ARM and Intel are doing fine in different markets until Intel have decided to join in the mobile sector. Though, ARM processors are still being used in low end embedded productions, and i dont really think ARM would get perturbed.

@Flyingscot, you are correct. I think a major player like Intel entering the business will do everybody good. This should speed up innovation and reduce costs due to competition between AMD and Intel. Eventualy, one company could get pushed aside, but I think that will be a bit down the road and after some major steps forward.

I believe it is a good thing that Intel is trying to compete with ARM in the mobile space.  It will help drive innovation up and prices down.
