Don't worry, once the 14nm low power ramp happens towards the end of 2014 on Intel's accelerated schedule, it will light a fire under Apple and Samsung and force them to consider a switch to Intel chips. That should boost the stock price and in a few years, all the extra fab capacity that Intel has commisioned will start getting used to build smartphone chips, and the revenue will corresponding go up to far exceed Qualcomm

I agree with Marsavian's timing projection but for different reasons. Towards the end of this year, Intel's game changing 22nm OOO trigate LP mobile SOC processor will be released. I think it'll take a few months for people to realize how it completely changes the mobile SOC game and they'll start exiting in hordes after that. ARMH is currently priced sentimentally, and Intel's holiday introduction will shake people out.

+The sales numbers have spoken. It looks like Microsoft has a veritable hit on their hands. With the intro of Haswell, some of the criticism around this PC will get addressed. Also, this leads the way for core series chips to be put to use in tablets which is probably a win for core series sales volumes. If I was Qualcomm or NVidia, I would be very scared about competition for tablet chips in this form which neither has a chance of competing with at least on the performance front.
Windows 8 it seems is set to take off as a touch OS albeit a little slowly contrary to earlier reports.
I hafta admire your persistence
In sticking to a game plan,
That brings ya pain man,
And at the end of the day nothing is gained.
So listen to the voice within
I'll see ya later,
Pay heed to the Grand Oral Disseminator
