How old is the smartphone? 4 years? Tablets? Even less, 2 Years.
One would have to totally uniformed to believe that mobility technology or its winners & losers has already played out. Mobility, embedded computing, and network-connected devices are still in the infancy stage.
Great point. The predictions of winner and losers kinda reminds me of people predicting the next larger band than the Beatles. When have they ever been right?
Mobility isn't played out, it's just getting started. All we are seeing now is how large demand is for these devices. There still isn't the right mix of devices in the market. Five years from now will look very different from today. Way too soon to call it.
anyone who would suggest that Intel has missed the mobile market, is either
1) ignorant with regard to how new technology rolls out in the market place 2) ignorant with regard to the history of how Intel has successfully established leadership positions in technology areas once it commits its resources to them (especially when coming from behind) 3) heavily vested in ARMH and in denial; hoping for the best 4) criminal in their intent to create thrash and market churn for their Wall Street masters. 5) all, or some combination, of the above.
