The new system, called Tizen, is expected to be rolled out by late summer in the form of a premium smartphone option by Samsung. While no formal announcement has been made, you can be sure that the new devices will feature Intel chips to reward the company’s support in the endeavor.
In addition to the above, Intel chips are used in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)s Surface Pro tablets, which represents an important push into tablets for Intel. Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is not abandoning its core chip business, but it is in the midst of a transition period. The stock’s stagnation during this period is not surprising and should not keep you from maintaining a position in the stock.
