Intel Aims A Smartphone At The World's Emerging Nations. Too late?

intel_emerging_markets_phone.jpeg Intel has realized that it's a smartphone world, and that if there's money to be made anywhere it's in the emerging markets--where dumbphones and featurephones still rule and the smartphone may have transformative power.

... Is Intel desperate? Is this move marketing genius, good for the developing world--or is it too little, too late?
