    Because of the smart phone business leader. The only reason intel appointed that person was because she was female and black

    Cost structure. - atom vs arm
    Ecosystem - ease of integration
    No big design wins.

      Sorry read the topic as smart phone only.

      Why did it fail. Team didn’t deliver. Her fault and many of the teams under. They had the lead on 5g by a year. And kissed it away
