Intel has to pay most attention to its eroding PC base. How much a sizable portion of the world population needs a PC is quite open to question. Tablets and various forms of convertibles could satisfy much of the 'need' for a PC type product.
Intel should concentrate on a very energy efficient and computationally superior tablet platform that can stand alone but also be as extendable as any of the vast majority might want.
Odd article since the low end is where the Intel is targeting their handsets. It looks like they will pursue a grow from the bottom up plan.
"the share of handsets using applications processors with integrated basebands will expand from 50 to 72 percent from 2012 to 2016."
you mean to say 50% of last years smartphones had baseband integrated to App processors!! hard to believe. Thats hard to believe . many of the successful phones last year had a discrete BB chip
Isn't Intel doing LTE and graphic all integrated? Your comments here is hardly accurate. Just wait until 4Q 2013 you may change your mind and hope that you will admit your comment is premature. If intel indeed provide these integration, Qualcomm and Nvidia and ARM look out!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
