Motorola Mobility is also working on an Intel Atom-based smartphone, but according to Taiwanese tech site DigiTimes, the market acceptance of these devices remains to be seen. The site heard sales of Atom-based phones have been flat, and that Intel is at a disadvantage with its single-core Atom versus the quad-core mobile processors from NVIDIA, Samsung and Qualcomm, and the dual-core chips from MediaTek, Texas Instruments, Marvell and ST-Ericsson.

DigiTimes heard the disadvantage in hardware specifications means Intel's handset CPU may have more opportunities in the sub-$US150 Atom smartphone segment rather than the mainstream or high-end market.
