Windows Tom Warren: "While Intel is trying to keep the Windows tree healthy, Microsoft is hoping that the leaves don't start to drop off before its own family of Surface devices are fully ready. Redmond isn't 'priming the pump' here, it's planting seeds for the future. If Microsoft is successful then it could be the world's biggest Windows OEM in just a few years. The future is Surface." You just have to look at the difference in build quality and supplied software between OEM devices and Surface even though Surface is cheaper to realise that the age of Windows OEMs is coming to an end. The writing's on the wall, and the OEMs know it: there's no future for them in Windows.

Intel's initial plans to become big in mobile went poof when Nokia dumped Meego and went for Microsoft. Now they are trying again with Samsung and Tizen, and their developers have to suck down a lot of abuse for it.

Yeah I don't think that Intel will be able to match ARM unless they license ARM. They might as well at this point. :-)
