Hardware, Embedded Systems Ah, the ARM chip. ARM is a hugely successful architecture, and can be found in just about every cell phone or other small device out there. ARM, however, wants more, and for a long time now we've been hearing predictions about an upcoming massive rise in ARM netbooks - so far, this hasn't materialised. Warren East, ARM's CEO, said in an interview with PC Pro that netbooks could one day make up 90% of the laptop market - preferably powered by ARM processors of course.

I meant the market, specifically, for ARM-based netbooks might have diminished to the point of being almost nonexistent,

Ok, point taken.

As I see it, it may take the other direction. With the same OS(Something linux based/Android/Chrome OS) and applications, the tablets may help increase the adaption of ARM netbooks. Giving the user the choice, do they want keyboard or not.
