Apple And Intel Could Strike A Chip Deal For iPhones and iPads

Intel has been trying to push into the mobile market for a while now. Although they have not made much progress, a deal with Apple would completely change that. Instead of trying to make their own device, providing chips for one of the largest mobile manufacturers may be Intel’s entrance into the mobile market.

According to a report from Reuters, Intel could be striking a deal with Apple in the near future. Less than 2 weeks ago, Intel made a deal with Altera that would be their biggest chip manufacturing customer in history. This deal foreshadows Intel’s future in that it could open up the Silicon Valley company to other contracts with big name mobile manufacturers like Apple.

Apple only made the switch to Intel x86 processors for Macs in January of 2006. The switch was a huge turning point in Mac computers and by 2009, with the introduction of Snow Leopard, the PowerPC architecture was completely replaced by Intel.

Would you like to see Apple and Intel working together in the mobile computing market? What kind of effect do you think that this deal would have on the mobile devices of tomorrow? Let us know in the comments below.

    With Apple’s duel with Samsung on and off the court, I think it would make much sense for Apple to ask Intel to make the chips for their smartphones too. But then again, since Apple already knows a thing or two about making smartphone/tablet processors, their interest would be in making Intel do the clerical work rather than the chip design in itself. Still, if Apple does strike up a good partnership, Samsung would have to think of other ways to beat Apple.

      Samsung does not need to beat Apple, as they are two separate companies producing products that run different Operating Systems. I’m not sure why people keep comparing “Apples to Samsungs.”

      If Samsung decided to run iOS (God Forbid), then I would see a point in comparing the two companies.

      Google should be more worried about Samsung than Apple, because as Samsung becomes bigger than life, and Android becomes heavily relied on Samsung to produce sales, Samsung just might start asking Google for a higher return on Applications sold on the Play Store.
      I think they are currently receiving 10%. I could be wrong on the numbers, don’t quote me on it.
