ARM will fly without windows? Then bring it on!

,----[ Quote ]
| I was reading yesterday this article of an 
| interview to Warren East, one of the top guys 
| at ARM.
| He goes on about how ARM will succeed with or 
| without Windows (not ME) supporting it once it 
| starts being pumped into markets in the shape 
| of a new architecture for netbooks.



Android netbook runs on new ARM9 CPU

,----[ Quote ]
| China-based HiVision is readying an Android-
| based "PWS700CA" netbook with a 600MHz
| Rockchip ARM9 processor and a 7-inch, WVGA
| touchscreen, and according to one preview,
| it's likely to sell for under $100. HiVision
| also recently introduced a Linux-based
| "PWS700B" netbook, as well as an "EB-0600S" e-
| reader, says the company.


ARM: our netbooks will fly with or without Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| ARM chief executive Warren East has claimed
| that netbooks could swallow 90% of the PC
| market, in an exclusive interview with PC Pro.
| The British chip design firm, which is the
| biggest rival to Intel's dominant Atom
| processors in the netbook space, claims the
| low-budget laptops could transform the PC
| market. And East says the chip firm will
| succeed "with our without" Windows support for
| its processors.


ARM processors to overtake Intel in mobile devices by 2013?

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve seen many similar reports that talk of
| Linux overtaking Windows for UMDs in a broadly
| similar timeframe. One thingâs for sure
| smartbooks and the like are here to stay.


ARM Seen as a Threat to Intel on the Mobile Front

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite the current developments and the latest
| advancements in x86 chips power efficiency,
| analysts seem to think that, even though Intel
| currently controls the netbook market with its
| new Atom chips, this dominance may be short
| lived. ABI Research suggests that the ARM
| architecture may make a strong incursion into
| this segment, likely taking away most of the
| mobile market share from Intel's units.
