Is there anything that Altera can do but Intel can't? I wonder if the FPGA is only be launched to pack some non-standard IP that Intel won't like to risk on. I would suspect finally Intel will eat the whole piece of cake. Altera won't be in the consumer/PC market for long.

Altera is fabless, has to wait for its part from TSMC. It's just you need more players to run smoothly now. Intel becoming like OEM now?

@ Resistion: I believe Altera will provide die to Intel who will sell the part so no fab problems.

So Stellarton is half-Intel, half-TSMC fabbed? Wonder how the coordination of chip and product lead times would work?

After long researches and marketing efforts of atom family intel slowly coming back to cheap portable low energy consuming chip market. Yet ARM is far apart leading the market, thanks for Apple's innovative products. Price of ~200$ is pretty promising either. However all these efforts are useless without a giant customers who are hungry for more. Dell and Sagem are initial good examples despite not enough. Overall low cost chip market demands reconfigurable systems, i wonder further details of Stellaris indeed. About MeeGo we see the first contributer of the team at the game, but what about Nokia? Where are they standing at the moment? i am sure we'll see new products of nokia with this platform very soon if first tablet will be in market shortly. What about implemeting atom to mobile sets? any details about?

Intel getting into SoC's and SiP's is worth noting. Tunnel Creek and Sandy Bridge both containing graphics in addition to core. The CPU aspect is being diluted it seems, with emphasis on the system.
