Apple thinks Intel is fab?

Rumor says foundry switch on cards

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Apple is considering switching its iOS device silicon supply from Samsung to Intel. The switch would complete Intel’s dominance in Cupertino, according to a report in EE Times

The article quotes analyst firm Piper Jaffray & Co as saying: “Intel is vying for Apple’s foundry business”.

Analyst Gus Richard said the move would make strategic sense to both companies: Samsung competes with Apple in the smartphone and tablet business, and with Intel in the semiconductor industry.

Apple has already signed a deal with TSMC as a foundry for A5 chips for the iPhone and iPad, as an alternative source to Samsung which for now will continue as source for both A4 and A5 silicon.

Apple and Samsung are also in court over whether the Galaxy range copies the look and feel of iPhones and iPads. ®
