    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.

    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.
