This is really Infineon's fault. They never had the resources (money and people) to focus on R&D for LTE as they were too busy working on customer projects. This was also one of the reasons they sold it. Intel has been in this game for only 2 years now and thats not enough to roll out LTE chips

jak620, I tend to agree with your statements, the only counterpoint being that this is Intel's third or fourth go at this and it is still off. Even Microsoft tended to get it right by v.3. And the one thing not clear about Intel's mobile chips is whether they intend to have anything different than what you can already buy from others. It will be interesting to watch this unfold. Intel is way too aggressive a company with with too many resources to be counted out.

I agree with the fact that Intel is late in the sector of smartphone APU + LTE. Apple was late when they reinvented the Mac product line. It was very late to enter the phone market. Google had to compete with the then search engine giant, Yahoo. Android was many years behind iOS when it started. Samsung was late on pretty much everything... and the list goes on. The thing is that this industry is very dynamic. It is never too late to innovate and change as long as the team has good vision and stays on the course towards it. Regarding all the fuss about Intel in critical condition. I think that it is way... too early to conclude.

I agree with the fact that Intel is late in the smartphone APU + LTE sector. Apple was not early on reinventing their Mac product line. Apple was late on getting into the phone market. Google was late when Yahoo was the dominating search engine giant. Android was several years late than iOS. Samsung was late on pretty much everything. MS was decades late on getting their hands dirty in the gaming industry. The thing is that the tech industry is very dynamic. It is never too late to innovate and change as long as the team has good vision and stays on the course towards it. Regarding all the fuss about Intel in critical condition, I think that it is way too early to conclude.

That will be too late.. Even for the low end market... The one thing Intel had to do get some market share was this...And they are late!.. May be they can sell some Atom chips to non brand Wifi only tablet makers! Or bundle with baseband chip for a deep discount!
