Intel reportedly lost $17 billion on Mobile since 2011

New Street Research analyst Pierre Ferragu estimates Intel lost a massive $17 billion in its Mobile division since 2011. The analyst writes Mobile is a strategic dead-end for Intel, which is still burning $2.5 billion per year, and says it wouldn't be a bad thing if the chip giant abandoned the baseband modem chip market.
"It all started back in 2011, with the acquisition of the Wireless division of Infineon. We estimate Intel lost $17bn on a cumulated basis in Mobile, and still loses over $2.5bn per annum."

It’s not a bad thing if Intel were to exit making “baseband" modem chips altogether, he writes, and perhaps the recent departure of Brian Krzanich from the top spot will produce a new leader with “a better ear for our call to exit” that business.
