Netbook challenge from rival to Intel
|12 января 2009|
Qualcomm plans to challenge Intel for dominance in the fast-growing market for mini laptop computers, or netbooks, and expects many companies to use its chips in devices this year.
Intel's Atom chips power most netbooks, but Paul Jacobs, chief executive of the leading US mobile phone chip maker, expects Qualcomm's Snapdragon to break that trend this year.
However, Mr Jacobs said he also expected Intel, the leading US computer chip maker, to attempt a push into the market for smartphones - highlighting a blurring of the lines between electronic devices and the rivalry between the groups.
"Intel is trying to figure out how to get into the smart phone space; they call them 'mids' [mobile internet devices], trying to change the name," he said.
"In the computing space, I think there's going to be a competition between Snapdragon-based netbooks and the [Intel] Atom-based netbooks," Mr Jacobs said at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which ended yesterday
