re: ARM will overtake Intel in netbooks, smartbooks, says analyst

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.

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

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.

This kind of market research report of April 1st should not be on EE Times.
