Switching to Intel news, things are really quite awful.I've complained here before about Intel not meeting its promises about shipping Bay Trail systems for the holidays. But even at CES, there really were no shipping Bay Trail Z3770 systems [though 1 announcement that I saw]. Lots of people are asking where's the Bay Trail Intel? The Z3740 that is is shipping in a dozen systems or so is for some reason limited to 2Gb and is not competitive with high-end ARM chips. Something really stinks here, but Intel isn't coming clean about it.
Worse! Intel appears to be rapidly losing the mobile market:
