Analysts don't expect to see Atom in smartphones

Posted on Friday, May 07 2010 @ 02:01:57 CEST by

Analysts believe there's little chance that Intel's new Atom Z6 will be able to make a major move in the smartphone market:
Why? For two reasons: First, because the established smartphone players have had years to forge established relationships with their components suppliers, which they have been loath to relinquish.

And the second reason may be a bit surprising: For all of the appeal an x86 microprocessor has to a tablet or notebook vendor, a smartphone can browse the Web and run apps just fine on an ARM processor, the default chip for smartphones. In phones, an x86 architecture is now a liability, analysts said.
