Hardware, Embedded Systems Last week, Rick Bergman, general manager of AMD's Product Group, noted that while AMD was excited about the growth opportunities it saw within the tablet market, it had no plans to enter the smartphone space. Bergman's comments are a reassuring indication that the company hasn't concocted a harebrained scheme to charge off into a market it can't currently compete in. The emerging tablet market is a different matter.

Yeah but they have concocted a harebrained scheme to charge off into the ultra-low margin DRAM market. AMD memory modules have been pictured online.

Have they? I doubt they make the modules (heck, they don't strictly make much of anything after Global Foundries spin-off), AMD probably just slaps their branding ("extracting more value" or smth) on a product most likely made by some OEM (that's where the thinnest margins are)

But secretly they want to enter the smartphone market.

Rumour..they are eyeing a takeover of Texas Instruments OMAP division.

Based on the current financial situation of AMD, i think that is easer for TI to takeover AMD. =P
