Qualcomm to push Intel in netbook market

Qualcomm plans to challenge Intel's dominance in netbooks, claiming many netbook makers will to use its Snapdragon chips this year instead of Intel's market-leading Atom.

Paul Jacobs, Qualcomm's chief executive, was quoted in the Financial Times saying that he expected Intel to attempt a push into the market for smartphones - emphasising how the distinction between the two device types is shrinking all the time.

Jacobs told an audience at the CES show in Las Vegas, 'Intel is trying to figure out how to get into the smart phone space; they call them 'mids' [mobile internet devices], trying to change the name."
