  1. During a conference call following the release of Intel's first-quarter financial results, CEO Brian Krzanich revealed that out of the five million tablet-specific processors the company shipped, 80 to 90 percent of them ended up in Android devices, leaving just...

    The PC division is shrinking and Intel has to expand and revamp their mobile CPU line extensively to stay competitive. The first step in this process: get rid of the Atom name since people associate it with slow netbooks... this is a huge flaw on Intel's part.

    I'm not interested in who makes the SoC's for my mobile devices just as long as I get the best bang for my buck. My desktop PC? Now that's a different question.

    I was under the impression that the Atom branding has been dropped in favour of Pentium.
     
  5. I am actually really interested in a Windows Tablet. However, I'm holding out till Q3-Q4 in hopes of getting my hands on one with the new Intel chips.
    Hopefully this doesn't mean that windows tablets will die out by then due to bad sales.

    For me personally, justifying the purchase of a android tablet is not going to happen. For sure not a high end version, I already have a android phone. I'd much rather have a Windows tablet (non-RT) to be able to play actual PC games on the go.

    Hmm I havent heard about that.
     
  7. Revenue was 12.76B, up from 12.58B for the same period last year. 7.94B is for the PC Client group alone, and even here you managed to post the wrong number. Last years number was 8.054B, you're off by only half a billion dollar...
    Why is this so hard to get right? It's not like the information is hard to find.

    Beyond the Android/Windows spilt on tablet, the other interesting factoid for Intels financials is that the volume for the PC Client group actually increased compared to last year(asp is down, of course), which is of course impossible since we have been told repeatedly for months now that pc shipments would continue to drop in 2014.

    Maybe they are taking some of the AMD share of the PC market?
