As a result, ARM, Texas Instruments and other manufacturers of smartphones and tablets that were previously in this field will have a worthy competitor, and smart phone users will have a wider range of offers to choose from. The corporation, which is a virtual monopolist in the market of chipsets used in personal computers, has grandiose plans to sell its products here too, for which it will make every effort to be a leader in competition with competitors.
Consumers will, of course, stand to gain from this race, as manufacturers in the future will endow their smartphones with more performance and, thanks to increased competition, will charge less for them.
As is clear from the words of the head of the chipmaker Paul Otellini, at present between Intel, Motorola Mobility and Lenovo there is already a cooperation agreement that is designed for more than one year.
