Qualcomm's Windows-capable silicon will land later rather than sooner

Microsoft and Qualcomm keep trying...

In the data center I can see them making inroads eventually in the Azure cloud. But the other big boys can have their own ARM chips custom built. Why pay Qualcomm?

Windows RT might have worked, but it was released before it was ready. People are tired of being Microsoft's beta testers...

Microsoft Surface (x86) seems to be doing pretty well. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Where the two have a good chance for success is the next Xbox. But, number of Xbox's sold is nothing compared to the number of cell phones. Is it worth the bother?

Maybe Microsoft should just buy Qualcomm and spin off the parts they don't care about. Hello new patent troll.
