When Intel's CEO since 2005 retires next year, the company will still face a problem it's barely begun to solve: finding a foothold in the mobile market.
Speaking yesterday at the Sanford C. Bernstein Conference, CEO Paul Otellini said looking outside the company for his successor would be a bad idea.
After an almost 40-year career with the chip giant, Otellini will step down as president and CEO in the second quarter of next year.
At his CES keynote speech, the Intel CEO announces a scad of new partners, shows some eye-candy demos, and introduces a barely coherent will.i.am.
Paul Otellini, who retired as the chip giant's CEO on Thursday, tells The Atlantic that he didn't do what it takes for Intel to be in Apple's initial smartphone.
Brian Krzanich's appointment to the top job may mean bigger chip manufacturing deals -- with Apple, for instance -- but watch closely for subtle shifts, too.
The chipmaking giant also appoints the head of its software business, Renee James, as president.
Paul Otellini pens a letter to the FCC in support of SoftBank's bid for Sprint, saying the U.S. needs added competition in the wireless space, reports Reuters.
Dadi Perlmutter, Intel's chief product officer, also tells CNET that devices running Intel's mainstream Core line of processors could sell for as low as $399 to $499.
Really cheap Intel-based tablets and laptops will run Google and Microsoft operating systems, sources tell CNET.
