    Giving massive discounts and making a multi-billion loss in the mobile sector as a result does tend to result in increased marketshare.

    Also being a process or two ahead helps. They can brute force their way in.

    Re: Intel is the second-largest tablet SoC supplier

    It'll be interesting to see if intel can keep this market share without continuing to give their products away. I don't think they will actually ever be able to compete unless they are willing to take the very slim margins in that market.

    If they drive Qualcomm etc into the ground by taking away their market share for long enough, then they won't have to.

    Re: Intel is the second-largest tablet SoC supplier

    Random fag packet calculation..... intel are spending almost 15% of their revenue (almost 35% of profit) on subsidusing the soc line.

    So every time you buy an intel chip it's ~15% overpriced to subsiduse these soc chips... nice.... not

    They can't afford to do that, investors will need some money back soon.

    since the battery life of devices with that chips are terrible, to give them for free sound like what they really do.

    Crap, Intel heard Qualcomm tablets can play 1080p videos without stutter. They came to intervene.

    TBH intel is fooked.

    Yes they have the near monopoly in one area, issue is, the area is quite small.

    Supplier isn't quite right for describing apple in this context.
    Since they don't make any chips themselves tsmc/samsung do that for them and they don't sell them to anyone else.

    By revenue the inflated cost of the ipad will make up for a lack of sales (around 3x the price)
    would be far more interested in volume of chips sold to consumers (not shops)

    R.I.P ARM as Intel's monopoly expands.

    LOL!

    Few facts for you....
    For every chip intel ships ~20 arm processors are sold.
    More arm processors are shipped every 2 months than PCs have ever existed.

    Intel has a monopoly in a highly lucrative area of the market, but that area is quite small in terms of total shipped.

    Re: Intel is the second-largest tablet SoC supplier

    It's quite a lot less impressive when you consider that they lost $4.2 billion in their mobile department due to the "contra revenue" from "selling" these chips.

    You can only buy market share so long.
