Seems to me they need to strike a deal with their old pals Microsoft to get included in the Windows Phone spec, cause Apple and Samsung sure as hell aren't going to start using them now.
I used to hear the "bong bing bong bong" jingle all the time years ago, I haven't heard it for ages now. Actually, maybe that's a good thing...
Intel just avoided heavy layoffs then (atleast for the next 2-3 years). But it is interesting to see that Intel has chosen to stick to its "process and manufacturing" roots and promote it rather than deviate for it. That is very interesting! Looks like orientation towards becoming a software company has taken a back seat again. Very interesting years ahead!
