Intel Will Merge Its Mobile Computing And PC Businesses

By 09:43 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

Intel will merge its smartphone and tablet operations with its Personal Computer (PC) division. Combining the two businesses will complete in early 2015 and aims to create the tech giant’s operations more efficient in today’s dynamic marketplace.

The chip maker has been losing money in its efforts to break into the smartphone and tablet realm, which is dominated by Qualcomm. Despite shipping 40 million tablet processors this year, Intel’s mobile unit lost $1.04 billion in Q3 due to the high subsidies it paid out to the device manufacturers.

Kirk Skaugen, the current head of Intel’s Personal Computer (PC) business will head the recent unit. The current head of the phone and tablet division will assist the transition and hold a different post within the company.
