Intel to have chips in smartphones from ‘premier-branded vendors’ by second half of 2011

While speaking at a conference hosted by Barclays Capital, Intel CEO Paul Otellini quipped, “You will see smartphones from premier-branded vendors in the marketplace in the second half of 2011 with Intel silicon inside them.” Mr. Otellini also went on to note that his company has won contracts on 35 tablet-style devices thus far. Intel’s chips have been noticeably absent from the smartphone marketplace, as the majority of devices have opted for ARM-based processors from Texas Instrument, Qualcomm, Samsung, and others. The CEO has been quoted several times as saying that the smartphone-chip development process is “a marathon, not a sprint.”
