ARM-based iPads choke Intel-based netbook sales

The recent news that Apple are selling around 18 million of their ARM-based iPads per year reminded us of our article Will Intel lose the computer market to ARM in 2012? from January. Following their success, there are now a growing number of competitors itching to release ARM-based tablet PCs of their own, like Marvell's $99 Moby tablet.

Compare just those iPad sales to the 35 million netbooks of all brands sold in 2009 and the predicted 36 million netbooks to be sold in 2010 and it looks as though Intel may at least lose the mobile market to ARM in 2012.
