    It is really too bad that none of the NA carriers have shown excitement for this... Reply

    We have Krait for the high end though. With that, I don't feel like we miss much from Medfeild. It was competitive when the first benchmarks were out, but by now it's just ok. Reply

    It's called leapfrog. Intel came out with the 32nm Medfield. Then ARM came out with new technology. Next Intel will be upgrading to 22nm with more features & more integration. It's what Intel & AMD did for years until AMD couldn't keep up. Reply

    So? For now, Krait is still better on the high end, so my point still stands that we aren't missing much until Intel improves. Reply

    Ya, and he's saying soon enough Krait wont be high end. Perfectly valid counter to your point. Reply

    It is a rectangle with rounded corners! It looks just like an iPhone!

    Cue the Apple lawyers in 3, 2, 1...

    Except Apple wouldn't dare try and claim patent infringement on Intel. Where would Apple's entire computer lineup be without Intel processors? Apple buys tons of chips from Intel, and Intel caters roadmaps to suit Apple's wants. Reply

    Apple is Samsung's second largest customer in terms of sales volume. In 2010, Apple purchased $5.7 billion of Samsung technologies for use in it's products - mostly flash, LCD panels, and ram, although who knows what else that figure includes.

    Apple has no more or less to gain from trying to litigate against Intel.

    You can by LCD's Ram and SSDs from plenty of other vendors.

    How are you going to replace a core I7 from another company?

    Exactly. There is a lot less to choose from in the CPU market than there is in the more "generic" component spectrum. Reply

    Intel phone was vaporware for years, but now I can just go to megafon shop near my house and buy it. Feels surreal.
    Although I'm heavily against idea of carrier-bound phones - looks like it brings so much trouble for fellow Americans.
