It is obvious ARM is mainly for mobile devices still. For servers, it is a different story.

~2/3rds of ARM shipments go into mobile applications. Of, the other 1/3rd, a lot of these units go in the microcontroller area. But there is a pretty respectable amount of "A" profile processors into automotive infotainment, TVs and other home gadgets. Definitely on a path to number 1 in the digital TV space with 3 of the top 4 now shipping ARM Powered platforms. But yes, the point in time where ARM has meaningful market share in applications such as servers and networking infrastructure equipment is years, not months, away.

@Robotics Developer: Just to clarify, the Windows division of Msoft will support ARM in its next-gen product. Dileep, who is a thought leader in the division of Msoft that runs big data centers, is more bullish on x86 retaining its dominance in the server-system space than he is on ARM making any big in-roads there anything soon given the huge s/w support issues beyond Windows.
