Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC sees revenues down 37%. Blaming HTC-1 high end phone delays.
Sounds to me like ARM revenues may fall short of expectations, if this indicator is reflective of the smartphone market. Remember ARM income stream is derived from units PRODUCED, with varying revenues based on model of chip used in Tablet, phone, or dare I say it RT computer.
- ARM based low end smarthones may account for the buldk of ARM royalties, numbers may be up though returns may be much lower.
- Win RT Tablet/Computer fairly much dead on arrival.
- Android/iOS Tablets facing stiff competition from intel powered devices.
