I don't like Intel for their monopolistic behavior in PC market, but mobile market needs Intel as alternative to ARM.

But even when Intel can come up with solution that can rival ARM's it's very tough for Intel to convince SS or Apple to use their chips as ARM offers those companies much more flexibility, So perhaps we will have 4 horse race: Qualcomm, SS, Apple and Intel.

Dont forget TI
The OMAP is the best for open source development, even better than samsung's exynos or qualcomm's chipsets

Latest news is that they´ll go out of the business after the OMAP 5, so I would not count with them. There is no OMAP 6 planned.
Note: I agree they are best for open source and I´ll miss them.
But I would count with NVIDIA Tegra, they are the best positioned ones on the tablet market and that market is growing right now. And there are a lot of expectations with the new Kepler architecture for GPUs, the die reduction with 28 nm and LTE integration in the chipset. Let´s see if they can deliver what they promised!

i dont think qualcomm's populary today will last... if cortex A15 will be introduce by TI, samsung even ST ericson and with mali-600 GPU i think it will have a fare share...

and besides intel's addressing this already and they're moving fast to atch up in the competition!so i think before 2012 will end they shouls introduce multicore chips!

but we also have to realise that its not only high end SoCs that sell well, low end SoCs is where the revenue is at.
