Intel Is Losing the Mobile War to Competing Chip Makers: 10 Reasons Why
NEWS ANALYSIS: Intel might own the desktop PC market, but when it comes to mobile, the company is still lagging far behind.Intel is officially losing the mobile war. Don’t take anyone's word for it but the company itself. For years now, Intel CEO Paul Otellini has admitted that times are tough for Intel in the mobile market and he has been trying to get his shareholders to focus more on Intel’s success in the desktop PC market than anywhere else. And considering his company is still generating billions of dollars each quarter, they’ve been happy to do so. But over the long term Intel can no longer afford to focus first and foremost on the PC market. This is not the mid-1990s when Intel and AMD were the only major PC chip manufacturers in the market. These days Intel needs to worry about ARM, a company that designs the architecture for chips, along with several companies that use those designs to build their own processors, particularly for mobile devices. In other words, the mobile world is a much, much different place than the PC market. And Intel has so far failed to understand that. That said, Intel says that it will make a splash in the mobile market this year. While it’s good to see Intel getting ready to fight harder in the mobile market, it might have already lost the war.
