AMD havent even taken a shot at the mobile market! Their current strategy is to reduce the cost anyhow..layoff people, ditch fab.. will work for a while, But without new products I am not sure If AMD can survive for long..
I always liked AMD so I wish them well. I am looking forward to being able to buy their embedded/low power products, similarly to how one can buy a SoC-based ARM solution or an Intel Atom and VIA motherboard. I wonder if they'll make boards themselves or have someone else do it, especially considering that Intel just announced that they'll stop making boards.

All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
