The company's decision is based in part upon feedback from retail partners, which suggested that such a product would be only modestly successful in the marketplace. Samsung also pointed to the lack of education about Windows RT, and suggested that it would require too much of an investment to properly inform consumers of the differences between it and Windows 8.
According to a Bloomberg report, AAPL is considerring use ARM Cortex based chip in iMac. Graduately, chips based on ARM design. I think that it is GOOG, AAPL, and phone makers' interest to see ARM based chip grow:
1. Everyone lisence from ARM thus differences between different chips suppliers are limited thus chip makers (QCOM, NVDA, etc.) are forced to price war. If they use INTC chip, this benefit is not there.
2. Now ARM Cortex A50 design is good enough to be used in PC, not just tablet
3. Little barrier of entrace for new players to supply ARM based chips - ARM is happy to lisence. Of coure, GOOG is happy on more competition
4. For PC makers, those chip makers have no leverage
Not just INTC, MSFT is also threated as Android has high probability to replace Windows.
No, the hype is porting to ARMH having finished with GLD and AAPL and NVDA ;-). Hype bubbles always crash though when reality eventually intrudes. I told you the NVDA $20+ price wouldn't hold and I am now saying the same about the ARMH $40+ price. Just a question of when not if.
Funny how you used to pump the company but now you just pump the stock price with ABSOLUTELY NO evidence that 5 years from now ARM will be in laptops and servers in a "big way" as you've said. Your time is now but you and ARM won't be so cocky down the road, and I can't WAIT to bring back alllll your old posts. Keep chirping, you're providing us with GOLD material.
