lol. right. They always wanted to be in the smartphone segment and ARM's growth had nothing to do with this.
pull the other one.
Really? They sold a certain department off, after all.
x86 chips in a non x86 reliant market?
As an N900 (based around the ARM Cortex A8) user, I have to say that intel would have to pull something really special out of the bag to make me even consider getting an x86-based smartphone. It doesn't just have to match ARM feature for feature, it has to be better, while maintaining/ improving battery life.
Look at the new Moorestown platform. Does seem tempting, since battery life on the N900 is already... :X
And since there's 5 chips, Nokia could fit the hero battery back in again, instead of the cruddy 1200mAh they gave us.
I'll do what I always do. Go for whatever gives me the best performance/experience for the amount of money I have to spend.
