Why Intel Corporation(NASDAQ:INTC) Should Eat The Apple Pie As Well


Dallas, Texas 02/26/2014 (FINANCIALSTRENDS) – Intel Corporation(NASDAQ:INTC) has now been receiving high analysis by industry experts and to a large extent by financial investment experts, wishing the company moves more aggressively into the scheme of things where Apple Inc has now established a strangle-hold.

Apparently, investor sentiment is pro Intel Corporation(NASDAQ:INTC) to take on Apple Inc.

Sockets should drive the business

Technology experts are inclined to the idea that Intel Corporation(NASDAQ:INTC) should move along the socket business spectrum with Apple Inc. rather than the smaller-sized chip business for Apple Inc.

If the chipmaker par excellence, as a long time dominant player for server, laptops and in the recent times slowing evolving mobile-enabling chips were to  bag Apple’s more voluminous requirement for the baseband socket it would mean higher revenues and returns. This would be possible to achieve only if Intel Corporation(NASDAQ:INTC) were to follow a more aggressive pricing policy.

Currently apple Inc offers over 6 developer kits for its iPhone 5c. If Intel were to raise the bar on the pricing and match Apple Inc price points for the non-CDMA iPhones, Intel will definitely be in higher business band width.

Intel Corporation(NASDAQ:INTC) will definitely be able to remain in-line on the overall technology spectrum if it were to develop and penetrate the baseband processor segment for cellphones. This will then give Intel access not only to the high end products  AppleInc develops but will also give it a side-way entry to Samsung’s range of products as well.

Intel’s competitors- Qualcomm and Broadcom – are strong players in the non-CMA sockets for baseband. Intel had earlier attempted to capture this market space through the acquisition of Infineon wireless. But it proved to be an idea which the company failed to explore to its highest capacity. Additionally, the chip should begin to move towards the mobile segments at a faster rate as the future of technology is apparently in ‘internet of everything’!
