Major turnaround in processor market predicted

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, ARM CPUs are invading the first tier. 
| Earlier this month, for example, Lenovo 
| introduced both an ARM smartbook called the 
| Skylight (below left) and a hybrid 
| smartbook/tablet called the IdeaPad U1 
| (below right). Both devices employ Lenovo's 
| Skylight Linux distribution, running it on 
| a ARM-based, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon, 
| though the IdeaPad hedges bets by including 
| a dual-core Pentium as well in its 
| detachable keyboard/base unit, which runs 
| Windows 7.

| starting with the 600MHz T4000 and 750MHz 
| T4020, integrate dual ARM Cortex-A9 
| processors, 10 DSPs from Ceva, plus 10 DSP 
| accelerators, and come with Linux BSPs, 
| says the company.


Rugged car computer touted for smart power controls

| Axiomtek announced a fanless, Intel Core 2 
| Duo-ready in-vehicle box computer that 
| supports Linux. The eBOX310-830-FL resists 
| vibration, can be switched on and off by a 
| car's ignition switch, and complies with E-
| Mark E13 and ISO-7637 standards for vehicle 
| manufacturers, says the company.

Intel Does Not Have Any Competitive Advantages â ARM.

,----[ Quote ]
| Mr. East is sure that going forward various
| versions of Linux will provide similar
| experience.
| [...]
| "If you look at what's been accomplished in 18
| months to two years and compare that to the 25
| years of the Wintel monopoly, it's clear that
| the consumer experience on Linux-based
| desktops ... in a relatively short period of
| time is catching up quickly,â said chief
| executive officer of ARM.


Intel Not a Strong Presence on the Mobile Market, ARM CEO Claims

,----[ Quote ]
| The ARM CEO concedes to the fact that the PC
| market is rightfully aimed at x86 chips, but
| says that the mobile segment is still ARM's
| territory. He also believes that versions of
| the Linux operating system will provide an
| experience similar to Windows, seeing how,
| according to him, consumers aren't concerned
| with the OS as long as the device performs
| well and has a working, comprehensive
| interface.
