True, those who can't afford iPhones and iPads are buying android based tablets/smartphones which is a very good news for samsung.

I would assume that this would include chips purchased for products shipped for sale during the Christmas holiday? My buying experience over the holidays seemed to indicate retailers ordered less "off the shelf" products due to worries about holiday sales. Electronic products were commonly found to be out of stock at stores. I wonder if the dip may be more related to lower stock than consumer purchasing.

If our industry is any indicator, it could be a sign of double dip. However, it may be that the economy is bad. Just are just worried with all these sovereign debt crises that orders are not being placed. This spring will surely give a clearer picture.
