Intel An interesting article at Ars Technica takes a look at some compelling data (the longer-than-normal processor update cycles in Apple's personal computer lineup) and speculates that Apple's enthusiasm for its partnership with Intel might be cooling. Like Apple's soured relationship with once-BFF Google, this may be the result of Intel's increasing activities in the mobile computing space.

Don't kid yourself, we are at most two years out from that limit on smart phones. Higher MP cameras and HD video will need more memory, if for nothing else than to buffer frames.


So you are expecting phones to have 4gb of ram in the near future? I don't see that happening.

E.g. iPad has only 256MB ram, iPhone4 512MB. If plentiful ram was easy & cheap for these devices (as it is for PCs), they would have 1 gig by now.
