Robb, 15 Jun 2017Are you serious? Look at the track history of apple for the last 15 years, then read what you ... moremeh... Look at Google. Can't get mad at a company that re-shaped the smartphone and then watched the reset of the game play follow the leader haha.
The more the merrier, I just hope it's leaps and bounds better than the competition.
SteveJobsFan, 15 Jun 2017Disgusting move from Google to once again poach staff from Apple, further proof they cannot in... moreAre you serious? Look at the track history of apple for the last 15 years, then read what you said one more time... Slowly. Apple literally steals ideas from every company years later and claims it as their own. Google is the forefront of innovation and sharing ideas... Apple on the other hand....
myname-is-trump-aaha, 15 Jun 2017there is intel !!!Intel doesn't make SoC for mobile phones anymore, only for tablets, the Atom X-series.
SteveJobsFan, 15 Jun 2017Disgusting move from Google to once again poach staff from Apple, further proof they cannot in... moreApple's Engineers are not enslaved to Apple. They are free to offer their services to the highest bidder. If Apple had paid these top engineers like top CEO's they might not have moved to Google.
It has become more and more obvious in recent years, probably since 2013 when the 64-bit A7 came out, that Android's chipsets were falling behind Apples.
Good maybe this time it'll finally solve the fragmentation problem thats been plaguing android since its conception...
Disgusting move from Google to once again poach staff from Apple, further proof they cannot innovate without stealing other peoples ideas. They've now resorted to stealing people themselves!!!!
Yes google make your own SoC optimise your android according to it and you can match if not beat apple
Tester, 15 Jun 2017I had no idea that this was even allowed. I though there would be a contract of some sort agai... morePreety sure there IS some contract in place,and even for lower key position the standard in the industry is 5 years.
I doubt this will result in anything, they're too late in the game without any preparation... maybe in 3 years?
Or we could see this as Custom Chips for Google products like a Router, Smart Speaker, or Google Glass like application.
I would not object to having similar single core performance on Android as what Apple is currently rocking.
Ouch. Maybe Apple, with their billions in the bank, should think more about how they are paying such critical positions.
I had no idea that this was even allowed. I though there would be a contract of some sort against such things.
