    Considering the Xoom and Xoom2 and more and more people going Samsung, nah. Reply

    More like Google+Motorola had no other choice, by making Morola devices around x86 they sidestep the unfair competition rumours that would had been unavoidable if it remaind mainly ARM based.
    That is, as long as they don't get Android before the other vendors.

    At the same time, as long as Google sticks to change the manufacturer for each Nexus device, this partership ensures that Intel doesn't get Android before anyone else, at least not from Motorola.
    Now if the next Nexus just happens to be from Lenovo...

    I'll bet good money that this dont have battery life as good as even the current ARM SoC's, let alone all the new ones released later this year that it'll be competing with. I'd also bet it's performance isn't better than the next wave of ARM SoC's or current quad-core designs. Reply

    I use to think the same way but that may only be true for 2012 and maybe 2013.
    I think in the long run Intel's superior manufacturing capabilities may beat the current chip vendors to smaller processes like 22nm and 14nm - thus gaining the upper hand in battery life and performance. Plus we will be able to do things like run all the current x86 applications on future Intel tablets without awful performance and battery life.

    Check out his article - it was quite insightful for me.
