ARM hopes to grab 20 percent of notebook market
ARM is making a lot of headway in mobile and the company believes it has what it takes to gain a foothold in the notebook market.
ARM CEO Warren East told The Wall Street Journal that ARM will hold 10 to 20 percent of the notebook market by 2015. He stressed that ARM will be bigger in PCs than Intel will be in mobile, which sounds plausible.
East thinks Intel powered smartphones will eventually manage to grab just 5 to 10 percent of the market. East also argued that the cost of ARM chips in PCs will be comparable to smartphone chips, which means they will be dirt cheap.
