Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is planning to sell its new processors this year, giving it more competitive capabilities in tablets and smart-phones. The company is trying to break into the mobile-phone chip market after more than ten years of unsuccessful attempts. A Bloomberg article discussed Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s plan to enter into the mobile-chip market.
“The Atom x3, the company’s first chip with an integrated modem needed to connect to cellular networks, is being shipped to customers. The company will update the processor to give it access to faster 4G wireless networks in the second half,” an Intel spokesman said.
Currently dominating the computer processors market, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), the world’s largest chip-maker, has started a new race by trying to gain attention from customers in the mobile phones market. In the previous year, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) made progress in its tablets section, shipping 46 million chips but that business was supported by subsidy payments to manufacturers, and contributed to an operating loss of $4.21 billion in its mobile division.
According to Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), it will be among the first to offer a modem chip known as the new XMM 7360 that will enable phone users to transfer data from cellular networks at fast speeds of 450 megabits per second. According to Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), the design with code name Cherry Trail, will be built on more advanced technology that will provide better performance and more battery life.
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) will not be alone in this space and will have to face tough competitors as well. Taiwan’s MediaTek Inc. has also announced new, more advanced chips for tablets, modem and processor combination for mobile phones that can connect to LTE networks everywhere in the world. MediaTek Inc. is so far the only other company to have supplied a significant amount of chips for 4G handsets. This effort from the leading chip-maker may open many new doors of business opportunities and could help it increase its customer base and goodwill; of course, if the steps taken result in success.
