Qualcomm about to distance itself from Intel

Tablet push

Qualcomm says it will extend its lead over Intel and distance itself from Chipzilla by cracking the tablet market. Qualcomm already dominates the smartphone market and its latest generation Snapdragon chips have more than 200 design wins.

However, on the tablet front it is facing increasingly strong competition from Intel, Nvidia and other players. This might be about to change.

“You’ll see a whole bunch of tablets based on Snapdragon 800 in the market this year,” Qualcomm Senior VP Raj Talluri told Bloomberg. “There’s a lot of talk about Intel and tablets. Clearly we see them still being far behind in mobile.”

In recent months Intel has stepped up its game in mobile and new Intel CEO Brian Krzanich seems to be taking the market seriously. However, Intel is still short on actual products, although some of its new mobile designs look promising.
