    The way it was worded on another post suggests Intel just refused to play ball with the cost side of things, They do not want to make a Soc that will make them cents in profit per unit sold. Maybe even lose money depending on R&D costs.

    With the only 2 high end Smartphone manufactures ( And actually seeing unit sales that could cover Intels Cost per chip) using there own in house SoCs makes that even harder to be succesful. These are the only 2 SoCs with higher cost per unit than Intels. Both have advantages in the price structures that allows them to do this.

    They would be better at this point in either leaving the market or offering there processing technology to Apple.
