Due to the influence of mobile devices such as smartphone and tablet PC, many related industries achieve growth, then what's the development end of mobile devices, just as PC comes to post-PC era? Is there also a post-smartphone ear?

The CEO make take Marvell private if Wall Street continues to badger him. Marvell has no debt and has a good cash flow. Most tech companies have management issues with risk adverse executives simply trying to do the same type of product development year after year. The bean counters in many companies have taken away the ability to innovate much. For example, just look at HP management. I think some of the suffering at Marvell has to do with RIMM going down the toilet by failing to offer a sleek solution to take a bite out of Apple. And the hard drive business also is in a rough patch at the moment since people want cell phones and possibly tablets. I think tablets are somewhat of a technology fad and just an alternative way of displaying a notebook computer.

I guess they're going to have to try to get into the consumer electronics swing, just like Intel. They'll need some key design wins.
