The article offers a comparison between the capabilities offered by Intel Corp.'s new Centrino Atom range of chipsets and traditional smartphones built on technology from ARM Holdings PLC. According to Gary Koerper of ARM licensee Motorola Inc., Intel and its x86 architecture dominate the computer and Internet realms, while ARM's technology is used for mobile handsets. ARM's Bob Morris said that power efficiency is the main reason why his company's approach is best for mobile devices.
