Let me know some market share numbers when they come out. Currently INTC has more than 99% CPU share in the data center. If QCOM can pull an AMD sort of thing and get 5-10% marketshare that would be a huge accomplishment. I will become interested when QCOM takes it first 1-2% of marketshare. Until then, it is basically a lab experiment and remains to be seen if customers will start to deploy in any meaningful manner. INTC did not get 99%+ marketshare just because other companies could not make equal or better chips. It is all in the software.

If QCOM can break this barrier it would be very big. Just as for INTC, if INTC could steal material 3G marketshare from QCOM would be.
