Intel wants a bigger piece of the mobile phone chip market

Intel is already the world’s biggest chipmaker, but that doesn’t seem to be enough for them. Now they are aiming to take a bite out of the mobile phone chip market. They won’t disclose their current share of this market, but it is very small.

“We want to grow our market share (in the mobile phone market) to double-digit levels,” Craig Barrett, chairman of Intel, told reporters. “I hope within the next few years to achieve that objective.”

Mike Thelander, and analyst for Signals Ahead currently forecasts their market share at 8.1% in 2009. This would put them behind Nokia, Qualcomm, Freescale Semiconductor and Ericsson Mobile Platform.

Earlier this month the first Blackberry with a high-end Intel chip was launched, giving us a first look at Intel’s aggressiveness in the sector. It will be interesting to see if their strength in the traditional chip sector can translate to the mobile field.
