A Win 8 OS device powered by an Intel 22 nm finfet enabled Atom might gain traction in the market today. But such a device can not appear until at least two to three iphone/ipad generations into the future. It would seem that Intel is doomed to years of chasing the market in mobile computing with no guarantee of success.

Hey! I´m a little surprised. Intel making anti-virus software? Making chips for mobile and chips for netbooks and ... well, looks they are everywhere! Can they? There´s a saying "If you hold too much you´ll loose a grip". Let´s see how the story goes. However, I think Win 8 for mobile phones is starting to feel like a craving... I think too much talk about it is working. I wan´t to see it already. They better make a pretty good thing if they want to put a battle to iOS and Android. where are your bets?

This may be very difficult market for Intel. And Intel will not make profit from this market segment. Intel should concetrate on their core market and plan for future.

Intel wanting into the phone market is fine, but we need to ask: what's the point? what unique value does Intel bring? Intel fabs are good, but Intel doesn't produce anything that beats existing phone chips in performance/watt. the traditional strength of x86 (ecosystem, network effects) is basically irrelevant as well.
