Intel is combining its netbook and tablets, ultra-mobility, mobile communications and mobile wireless divisions into a "Mobile and Communications" super-unit. It's aiming to catch up with the portable chip big boys like Qualcomm and NVIDIA. Santa Clara's chips may power 80 percent of the world's desktops and laptops, but in the mobile space the energy efficient ARM (and its multiple licensees) is king. The new unit will be headed by Mike Bell and Hermann Eul and will be in charge of speeding up the development of future blockbuster mobile chips, as well as ensuring a good launch for the 32nm Medfield when it arrives early next year -- it's got some massive dainty smartphone shoes to fill.
