According to the number one ARM, the mobile Atom processors made by Intel's "good enough", but not as good as owned by ARM.
"They (Intel) has taken several designs that are not designed for mobile phones. They realize it, but the design is still used by selecting the product performance and cost suitable for mobile phones," he said.
Apple, when I started designing the iPad, actually briefly considered as the Intel Atom processor that tablet. However, the judge canceled because of Apple's processor was not efficient enough to run the tablet with a touch screen.
Finally, Apple would prefer homemade chips, namely the A4 processor, ARM-based designs.
However, Intel has been beating the drums for war in the realm of this mobile chip. Currently ARM is still a king in this business, but armed with his experience in desktop computers, Intel is ready to reduce market share during this diraup ARM.
At CES 2012, Intel introduced the Atom Z2460 processor-based Medfield specially designed for smartphones and tablets.
Lenovo and Motorola have also expressed readiness to market smartphones that use these processors.
Lenovo has launched its own Android smartphone, Lenovo K800, at CES 2012. This makes the K800 Lenovo became the first smartphones that use processors from Intel.
