I chuckled as it sounded like one of you two wrote this. Intel is starting to really impress me. Francois Piednoel said Phones would be last and I think it might be because all these tiny window's tablets are going to be all over the place and then all of the sudden the same devices will be a phone.
Will Windows RT go the way of the Zune?
How small is Windows RT’s market share? Blink and you could miss it. Windows RT is the “light” version of Microsoft’s new Windows 8 OS, designed to operate on less powerful devices such

The tablet offers 32 GB of internal storage, has a micro USB port, micro HDMI port, and a micro SD card slot to support 64 GB of additional external storage. It weights 479 grams and is 10.6 mm thick.
The Toshiba Encore tablet costs $349.99 and will be available at major retailers.
Windows RT wasn’t embraced by manufacturers upon its release last year and even Microsoft’s Surface tablet suffered in the sales department. Microsoft continues to push the OS with its revamped version on the Surface 2, but if manufacturers like Toshiba are managing to run the full Windows 8.1 on slim form factors at lower price points, then you have to wonder what’s the point?
Toshiba puts Windows 8 tablet in your pocket

Toshiba Corp. is putting out an 8-inch touch screen tablet this month, which it describes as a pocket-sized device that runs the full version of Windows 8.1.
Running on an Intel Atom processor and with the smaller screen size, you might expect Toshiba’s new Encore tablet to run Windows RT 8.1, the lighter version of Windows 8 that Microsoft Corp. designed to run on lower-powered processors used for mobile devices. But with Intel’s chips for mobile devices coming down in price and offering similar battery life to the popular ARM chipsets, it may be that fewer manufacturers see a need to sacrifice the additional capability offered by Windows 8. (Windows RT for example, won’t run Windows legacy software compatible with Windows 7 and earlier. It is limited to the Windows Store apps.)
Encore sports a 1280×800 resolution screen, an 8-megapixel camera, stereo speakers, and the full array of sensors you’d expect in a modern tablet. With Intel’s InstantGo feature, the device will be able to receive pushed updates while in sleep mode.
Toshiba says the tablet is made with Skype conversations in mind, with on-board dual microphones and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. It also comes Office Home and Student 2013 so you can open and edit all those Microsoft Office documents you work with on a regular basis.
Thanks for posting that. I've been working all weekend, trying to get a daughter home for the holidays, etc. and haven't kept up.
Would love to hear from anybody but the internet dweller that has 21,000 posts, never leaves here and insults people. He's so desperate it's woefully pathetic.
He's not sane and is screwed up bad in the head. Don't give him the attention he so badly wants. There is one person on every single message board in the world that has OCD and you will never slow them down See ya.
Look how that turned out? They did that to try and manipulate the stock. I type this from my new Haswell-based Mac Air. Easily the best machine I've ever been lucky enough to own.
Nomura Cuts Price Target on Intel; Maintains “Reduce” Rating (INTC)
By Michael Flannelly|April 5th, 2013
Nomura Securities analysts trimmed the price target on microchip maker Intel Corporation (INTC) on Friday ahead of the company’s launch of its Haswell processors.
The analysts maintain a “Reduce” rating on INTC and see shares reaching $18, down from $19. This new valuation suggests a 15% downside to Thursday’s closing price of $21.14.
“January through March are seasonally the weakest months of the year for PCs. This year is no different. PC demand is down 15% y-o-y. But Intel likely recognizes this pattern and into earnings we believe will stay cautiously optimistic on 2013; highlighting a greater mix of touch-enabled ultrabooks, lower price points ($499), and the launch of Haswell processors,” said Nomura analyst Romit Shah.
“The upcoming Haswell processors reduce power consumption to 7-10W, but Intel will likely need one more node transition (14nm Broadwell) to bring Core to tablets,” Shah added.
Intel shares were down 23 cents, or -1.06%, during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up +2.52% year-to-date.
Nomura Secruities was THE news of yesterday. The "low" price targets are substatially rising. Have a great weekend.
Quite a few informative exchanges and good information. Not a single argument.... Since he arrived? Nothing but a trainwreck. There you have it. Facts that can't be disputed.
He's decided to yukk the whole board up and ruin it for everyone. He's the little dork that, once he knows he's going to lose a game of checkers, turns the board upside down and ends the game.
Sad. Marsavian barely sticks his head in here anymore. alex.d posts less, etc. All you have left is WW and Semi Junky (illiterate, can't understand anything he posts) pillow fighting and looking for someone to antagonize do they can get through another day of their "lives".
It took you, what, an hour to not honor this statement???????

You're absolutely right. I'm done with him. Guy keeps accusing me of having no ethics when my disclosures are clear as day. Pathetic.
Absolutely. I have many posts from earlier this year that say W.S. is all about transactions and picking your pocket from trading fees. The way to beat them, badly, is to buy Intel near 20 and hold it for a decade or two. :)
