There are a few things wrong with Intel's approach to smartphones and tablets. Chief among them is that Atom is just a terrible perf/W cpu. Another is that the closed and secretive nature of their SoC architecture means that it takes a lot of effort to port popular OS's over to it. All this leads to the fact that Intel is trying to operate its smartphone push like it did its PC business: try to gain proprietary, exclusive holds. Instead of embracing Android with its full attention, it's tried what, 4 times now to bulldoze another OS? To me, this seems to be a clear attempt at trying to recreate another Wintel environment. It's lucrative to be part of a Wintel ecosystem but it's very difficult in a market where you're the challenger.

Taking bold decisions in scraping a bad decision early is good for a company. But doing the same too many times doesn't indicate a good sign for an organization. Is it because of not so capable leadership or is it because of the economic turmoil?
