Thanks, Dylan! So Intel is practicing (has been practicing, arguably a pioneer going way back, e.g., WiMax before it went in-house) what some other large firms have started to do ... strategic investment.

Mr.Iniewski,Even I was thinking along the same line. The companies together encompass different domains which may be brought together in mobile platforms. Putting up an Intel inside logo in products using these technologies would really help in improving Intel's visibility .

thank you Dylan...I guess the investment is made by Intel capital not Intel per se so making money on the investment might be a key consideration...plus if you invest in a start-up you presumably have something to say whether it uses Intel or ARM chips ;-)...Kris

I'm not aware of any specific ties between any of these companies and Intel microprocessors. I think this is another example of Intel investing in technologies that it believes will in the long run increase demand for consumer electronics and thus create a bigger potential market for Intel chips. But I don't know of any reason why the products from all of these companies might not ultimately end up in products powered by ARM-based processors (some of them may already have). The investments here seem to me to be across a relatively wide swath of technologies, and in my opinion it's kind of a stretch to lump them all in the category of supporting mobile hardware. But obviously Intel wanted the tie in with Mobile World Congress and wanted also to deliver the message that Intel is committed to mobile and putting its money where its mouth is.

Dylan,would you care to comment how these investments relate to Intel's microprocessors business? dr Kris
