as far as i know, it was really a few years then, intel has planned "atom" for smaller devices like the netbooks, pdas, mobile phones. But i think, they really had to work hard to make perfect it. As we all know, most netbooks have it. It just really took them a long time, but i guess, it's not yet too late. Let's just see what they could do.
ohm, 01 Mar 2012cant imagine cooling fan at the back of your phone..I don't think cooling fans do have any scope for phones as its not laptop or desktop...

Does it mean that you will be able to install ms dos (also any windows) an a phone as main os?
It is too late and too little for Intel to enter the mobile and portable devices as dominate by ARM processor.
Great news. Intel was destined to enter this market segment, being a invincible player in desktop market. I hope Intel will release something as good Sandy bridge in mobile CPU market that is going to completely outperform the Qualcomm, Apple etc processors.
techqui_geek, 28 Feb 2012i think this processor is suitable to windows phone and powerful for symbian...Nokia+Microsoft... moreWould also like to see it in an Nokia - maybe in the 808 PureView successor next year!!
LIKE! Thats all what an smartphone needs, and not some stupid quad-core's!!
hi, 28 Feb 2012"PowerVR SGX544MP2, which is supposed to double the performance of an SGX543MP2 found in ... moreThat part of the article is based on an Anandtech article to quote "The SGX 544 is similar to the 543 used in Apple's A5, however it adds support for Direct3D 9_3. At 533MHz you can expect roughly twice the shader/compute performance of the 543MP2 that's in the A5."

blueglue, 28 Feb 2012My point is, HT has its importance. In comparison to having 4 cores it would be better to have... moreIntel introduced HT technology so they can offer something a dual core CPU could do but at a much cheaper price...
For those who don't know, HT simply means 2 threads that are run at both the same time and they both execute at the same time... before HT, on a single core, we had a race condition where 1 thread would finish before the other thread....
HT eliminated 1 thread finishing first as both threads will execute at the exact same time so they both finish at the same time, same thing could be achieved by using a 2 core CPU for example 1 CPU would deal with all the graphics on 1 thread, and the 2d CPU would control the 2nd core and deal with all the sound... 50/50 directing the processor...
obviously, 1 processor could be maxed out to 100% to do what 2 cores do by using HT... HT makes it easier for single core processors, dual, quad core makes HT seem like a marketing tactic that's not going to work with any device with more than 1 CPU.
I think that intel should have come early and would have easily won because no 1 noes snapdragon or d odrs but people would have been happy came to know that their phone is powered by a intel processor and would have felt like they have a computer
intel is working with moto and goole now. a very excellent partnership
The highest end one would have been the best SoC today. But next year? I don't think so...
Why interl graphic is so poor compared to NVIDIA. I noticed that last version of Macbook air or Macbook pro that used interl graphic is not as good as NVIDIA graphic. I think if apple use intel graphic chip the quality of apple will be downgrated.
