I would said that Intel Company is finished once the new ARM cores will hit the market this year or next year that supposedly will offer 3x the performance of current A15 cores or 5x less power at the current level of A15 performance. Efficiency is all about performance per watt so if ARM can bring the same level of performance with 1 Watt CPU that Intel brings with a ludicrous 100 Watts CPU then ARM is the undoubtedly winner and Intel will follow Nokia towards bankruptcy in less than 2 or 3 years.
So I guess the OS maker that can adapt and put a full desktop OS on a phone wins in the end :)
Imagine docking your phone and instantly having your PC with you. Microsoft really moved in the right direction.
Anonymous, 10 May 2013Ugh tablets..still no purpose in this worldSeriously? They are just bigger phones. They are more enjoyable for web browsing, watching videos, playing games, practically anything you enjoy on your phone is more enjoyable on a tablet.
Plus, in many work-related scenarios a tablet makes much, much more sense than a phone or a laptop. Like in a hospital.
And finally this day came. We are comparing smartphone with a laptop. And it was obvious. Even I guess in the next few years laptop will remain just a tool for flashing smartphones. At least I do that honestly.
I can't understand why anyone would chose a smartphone over a laptop and vice-versa...
