Smartphone sales up 47 percent as Android increases its lead

Apple probably first one to adopt Haswell -
for crying out loud - Apple plate is full to the brim and now they are going to dump Intel ?
I would not be surprised if Apple adopts Haswell first. Just imagine the commercial "Our thinnest Macbook Air Ever..." or how about a Macbook convertible? I know Apple has said they would not do that, but they also said they would not make a 7" tablet and not build a phone either.
BTW, the Xbox 720 will have Intel chip inside and there is rumour of a 7" gaming tablet called Xbox Surface that may also have Intel chip inside.
