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!

Integration of low-end features is part of the accelerated commoditization process.

"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

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. http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/24/3912428/intel-launches-the-yolo-its-first-smartphone-for-africa

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.

If you have ever been off road in the rest of the world, you don't need a smartphone, either. BTW, there's no LTE there either, so who cares about BB integration?

Certainly could use GPS in most of the world. Local map database and I'm sure a lot more could be useful. Just need enough power to keep using, small solar panel maybe.

Excellent summation Les. I spent 10 years with Intel and as an engineer who has been following the trends, I couldn't have said it better myself. Cheers!

Given history and consumer purchasing wants (not needs but wants) I would have to say the company that provides the lowest cost end product with reasonable performance and a good feature set would be well positioned for future sales. I know that there are many who just have to have the latest/fastest/who cares at what price device but the volume business is in the lower cost fuller featured smartphone market. We don't want to give up features but do want them for lower cost. Time will tell if Intel or the competition will win out..

Trash of an article. What else can you expect when you have ARM funded UBM write articles against Intel. On top of it, by this bozo of an article writer.
