Re: Bound to be a success

It will be interesting to see what happens. One factor that might be relevant is that 2 years ago the fastest non-Apple mobile cpu was the 810 which was a bit of a disaster - it got too hot inside phones. Now we're looking at the 835 which is much faster and supposed to run much cooler, so it might work adequately.

As I recall, Windows 3 didn't really take off till the 80386, because running it on an 80186/V series or an 80286 wasn't a very nice experience.

However, this isn't a prediction, just an observation.
