Intel has new chips to be introduced at MWC 2014
Intel has not been having the most success making inroads with mobile applications, and it is rumored that the chip maker might be using 2014 to determine if it should exit the market completely in 2015.

Given that, Intel is still developing its product line and it looks like 2014 will have some new silicon for manufacturers to use in smartphones or tablets if they so choose.

Expected to be introduced at MWC 2014 in Barcelona, Intel will lift the curtain on a new series of CPUs across the board. Particularly in mobile, there will be a refresh of the Bay Trail-M and Haswell series of chips for smartphones.

On the tablet front, Intel will have a new line of 64-bit Atom chips for Android and Merrifield Atom processors often found in Windows tablets. Following the formal announcements at MWC, we would see these processors in hardware later in the year.

Even though Intel has had to fight tooth-and-nail for what little market share it has in the mobile space, there is certainly going to be room for growth if the company can latch on for the huge surge in product sales expected in China this year and for the foreseeable future.

Things are getting hot for the mobile chip makers... Hope Intel will have some SoC's worth using about this year... I heard the same news last year as well and i saw not many Intel powered Mobiles.. I can only remember the Droid RAZR i... d_b

Come on... Zenphone 4/5/6 were launched during CES 2014 and not 2013. Mostly its ASUS and Lenovo coz they are dominant in the Laptop market... Otherwise u cannot see intel penetrating the Mobile market...

With Qualcomm covering mid-to-high end chips and MediaTek for entry level models, it'll be hard for Intel to grab any large piece of the smartphone market. Good luck is all I can say.

It would be nice to see lots of competing high end chip sets in phones so that not every phone has the same qualcomm snapdragon 800 chip in it!
