It was handy. You have pretty good eyes (or maybe bad ones) if you can see this is an IBM Cell processor. True it is not an Nvidia or Qualcomm chip but some other, probably eight-core multiprocessor, I suspect an x86.

Just curious why you used an image of the IBM Cell Processor chip to headline an NVidia/Qualcomm story?

...and Intel once again being non-competitive tablets/mobile in 2013 or 2014. That is the interesting story. Qualcomm 800 and Tegra 4 much better than Intel just released Clover trail by far. Good thing Intel compared Clover trail to 2011 shipping Tegra 3 last week. Qualcomm800/Tegra 4 much better than Intel's about a year away release Bay Trail Q4-Q1/14 release (no integrated LTE) but even without integration.... Foundry 28nm HPm / HPL is better than Intel's 22nm.

I am wondering if the integrated approach of Qualcomm and Broadcom for the tablets providing baseband support is going to be a significant factor going forward? Is there another feature or limiting factor that is in play? The market share that Apple enjoys has got to be a big fat target for the other players. I wonder what 2013 will hold for new products.

Interestingly Strategy Analytics did not talk about TI's Omap in tablets. But given TI's move out of the space I would expect it is diminishing and I wonder whether they might have lost the design win for the next gen Kindles.

Any idea about TI's share in tablet market? Should be pretty high with their socket in the Amazon Kindle devices, which is the only other tablet other than iPad/nexus7 that's selling well.
