What is the effect of Tablets on the future IC market. These days looking at CES or any electronics vendors, evry one is actually talking about a Tablet.

''Pent up demand unleased for PCs, autos, etc.'' We don't need more unleased cars.

Yeah... Is Global Foundaries an Arab or (covert) Israeli company?

@dnenni: how about EUV? Pushed out to 2015? Nikon's Lithovision this year will be interesting, I suspect we will hear the same reasons for the delay as last year's! @sranje: if 2011 ends up being a double digit growth year for chip companies, you think hiring will keep pace? MP Divakar

Fully agree with Bill McClean - 2011 will likely be a double digit growth year for ICs. IC Insights has maintained that projection since September (unlike many far more conservative forecasters)

What about effect of GFs? UMC has fixed market share but GF is highly pushy, after Q4 '10 releases of TSMC i would doubt about 20% in '11 but growth for all foundries for sure, i agree on that.

Surprisingly I agree with all 5 and would add that the foundry business (TSMC) will grow 20% in 2011. D.A.N. www.semiwiki.com

Interesting enough. As recently as October IC Insights was saying 450-mm was a matter of "if not when". Now we have their first cut on when.
