In 2010 Intel netbooks 31.1 million units ARM smartbooks 7.8 million units. In 2012 Intel will ship in 43.2 million ARM will control 52.9 million Intel avg growth rate per year: 19.40% ARM avg growth rate per year: 289.10% Are you kidding all of us? This kind of market research report of April 1st should not be on EE Times.

CharlieCL: ARM also refers to the ARM architecture used by many of ARM Ltd's partners, it's "everybody else" vesus Intel, not just ARM the company itself per se.

ww250: I know. This can not explain ARM's exponential growth vs Intel's linear growth in netbook/smartbook.

This market figure, I'd have to say, is the most optimistic number for ARM I have ever seen. As long as smartbooks are concerned, I haven't found anyone in the market research community saying that the Netbook vs. Smartbook nubmer would flip any time soon -- certainly in 2012 or even in 2014, for that matter. I recently did a research on the netbook, smartbook, MID market. See the story entitled "Netbook, smartbook, tablet PC: Can anybody straighten this out?" here: http://www.eetimes.com/showArticle.jhtml;?articleID=220200269 Even, the emergence of slim clients for cloud computing included, The Information Network's numbers may be a little unrealistic.
