Moves By New Intel CEO Hint At Increased Focus On Mobile Computing
Newly appointed Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has begun reorganizing the giant chip maker, establishing a new business unit aimed at emerging products, particularly in the mobile computing market.
While Intel dominates the PC chip market, it has struggled competitively in the mobile device arena. Krzanich's moves likely signal that under his watch Intel will be more aggressive in pursuing that market against competitors AMD, Qualcomm and Samsung.
The "new devices group" will be run by Mike Bell, currently general manager of Intel's Mobile and Communications Group.
