A little surprisingly early, must be tough times ahead even for Intel.

to resistion, I hear this is a results of Intel's mobile designs (Atom) are not competitive with the latest Cortex A15 (Snapdragon S4, A6X, Samsung Exynos and soon Nvidia Tegra 4). Asia OEMs have seen Atom 32 and 22nm roadmap and it is very uncompetitive. Intel sales team was saying it results from poor Power/Performance/Area metrics of Intel 22nm node. Now we are hearing Intel 14nm not going well and mobile parts pushed to 2H/14. This is why Intel needs new leadership. Head hunter search by Intel is looking for someone from outside with mobile phone experience.

How about Dadi, I use to work under him. He is a man who could turn things around... need to look at the entire cellphone in holistic manner (platform...). someone needs to make a difference rather than saying moore law in ever IDF (do not take me worng I have high respect for Gordon Moore).

Intel has never taken an outsider for the top job before. But maybe that is part of the problem.

Paul Otellini was paid a package worth $17 million for his efforts in 2011 http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4370482/Intel-CEO-pay-2011 So if you think you can do a better job perhaps you should ask for $20 million.

Dadi Perlmutter, Renee James, Stacy Smith are likely internal candidates.

US Made - I also worked Intel and agree. "Moore's Law" is not a business model but that has been Intel's plan under Otellini. Silicon technology keeps changing for no real benefit at communication SOC level. Intel silicon manufacturing also does not understand low cost. My old Intel group still using foundry and would like to continue to use foundry rather than use Intel internal silicon. Andy Bryant is just wrong when he says " Intel can meet (the mobile challenge) though its superior chip making technology" . Otellini/Bryant just do not mobile SOC design and the failed high cost silicon strategy (copy exactly, design rule restrictions, Et cetra).

Intel has been talking about a process technology lead for 15 years that would allow Intel to win the mobile market that has clearly not worked See this 15 year old Intel propaganda http://www.ece.umd.edu/courses/enee759h.S2003/references/Fazio_NVSMW_021703.pdf Bryant again saying more of the same http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2012/11/19/intel-chair-bryant-tried-to-get-otellini-to-stay-cherished-ceos-departure-a-hard-day/ "Otellini felt it was time to turn over the reins to a new generation as Intel admittedly faces challenges in the mobile computing arena — challenges, however, that Bryant feels Intel can meet through its superior chip-making technology." Insanity to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect a different result. Time for an outsider to clean house and install a new management team that understand what it takes to win in mobile.
