Intel's new smartphone chip key to ARM battle

Agam Shah, IDG News Service | June 7, 2011
Intel's upcoming Medfield chip will be an acid test of the chip maker's ability to enter the smartphone market and battle ARM, analysts said.

Intel is a manufacturing powerhouse with massive technical and financial resources, so the company shouldn't be counted out of the smartphone race, In-Stat's McGregor said.

"That does not mean they will have the right product at the right time from a competitive standpoint. They have taken several shots at the graphics market and always ended up short. I don't know if this is a similar case, but Medfield will definitely be a critical test," he said.
