Intel Had Just 0.2% of Smartphone Proccessors in H1 2012

According to a market estimate released by Strategy Analytics, Intel may have captured just 0.2 percent of the smartphone processor market in H1 2012. If we use Gartner's estimate that about 298 million smartphone shipped in that time frame, then Intel may have shipped just about 1.5 million Medfield smartphone processors.

That number is rather negligible if we also consider that Qualcomm had a controlling 48 percent market share with more than 140 million Snapdragon units. The next largest smartphone SoC manufacturers were Samsung, Mediatek and TI.

Of course, Intel shouldn't be worried just yet. Medfield is Intel's first product in the segment and is trying to establish itself as a credible player in the segment. Year one should be seen as an experimental exercise, and the upcoming 22 nm product generation is expected to to see greater customer adoption.

2012 was important for Intel to get its foot into the door. In 2013, however, Intel will be expected to dramatically increase its smartphone processor output.

    1.5 million units shipped is pretty good for a non existent company (Intet)

    I guess when Intet had 0% market share you could define 0.2% market share as some success lol

    Quality journalism at its best... if the lack of content isn't bad enough, this is exactly why I find myself coming to THW less and less. x_x

    Two words are not spelled correctly in a ten "word" headline. I've never complained about proofreading / editing the articles on TH, but that's too ridiculous to miss. "Intet" and "proccessors" -- really? On an article that appears on the front page of TH? Oy.

  • Um, Intel really didn't have much out in the first half. Orange and Motorola Razr-i are both 2nd half products. Really, the Motorola product just now launched. Come back and tell us about 1st half 2013 for a real comparison of how the first Medfield did. Pretty stupid to say they only sold a million and a half considering they just started selling them in China in mid 2012. That is actually not bad considering when they started. Again, if they are still selling less than 10 million in 1st half 2013, then write a story about it.
