Catalyst 1 - An Update on Intel's Smartphone Strategy
Intel already has a number of smartphones in the market which have Intel processors. Intel is still working on improving its mobile processors, though the current generation of "CloverTrail" dual core processors is already receiving good reviews from the market. Intel's biggest smartphone customer is the Chinese PC giant Lenovo who is all set to release one of the most anticipated smartphones - K900 on 6th May in China.
While Intel does not have much of a market share in the smartphone chip space, it will change significantly in the next year as Intel does two things:
a) Introduce the next generation of mobile processors "Merrifield" on the 22 nm process node. Note this will be the most advanced mobile chip as Qualcomm and Mediatek do not have the 22 nm process capability.
