ARM based tablet NOKIA N81 uses TI OMAP 2420 processor with ARM 11 core.Many more gadjets are being designed with ARM cortex architecture and other ARM architectures.So i feel Intel will take this advantageously and work in all possible wireless applications and develop new ARM based chip sets for various applications.

Intel processors are powerfull and can run all the applications of windows operating system. Certainly Intel chip set consumes more power compared to ARM.Also Intel chip set occupies 5 times more space compared to Arm. In wire less applications both the power and size are crucial for the success of the product. So this is calculated and benificial move by Intel to go with Arm.

So, will Intel's new wireless group work on chips only for mobile handsets? Or does their work also involve chips for MID and tablets as such? Where do you draw the line?

The decision is wise since the business are so different. I am wondering the decision of going for ARM-based than Intel based processor.

Run as a separate business, it has a chance to make it on its own. It will be interesting to see this compete with the other players in the market and how much Intel will invest.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
