Intel's bought a foothold in tablets, but now it wants to cut its losses

Agam Shah | Jan. 16, 2015
This year, the chip maker wants to focus on making money on mobile chips rather than shipping large volumes.

One example could be Dell's $399 Venue 7 8000, which is as thin as a smartphone and has a 3D camera. It runs on Android and has an Intel Atom chip code-named Merrifield. Intel later this year plans to release new mobile chips code-named Cherry Trail, which will bring wireless charging and data transfers to tablets.

Intel may have achieved its goal in the tablet market, but challenges remain in the smartphone market. Only a handful of smartphones have Intel chips, and it will take years to overtake ARM processors, which are in more than 90 percent of handsets.
