Intel provided the original blackberrys (model 957 and 950) with 386 processors and they have extremely good battery life, so it is possible for Intel to compete in the handheld/phone market but they did not chose to do so. Hopefully morrestown will compete with companies like ARM in the phone market.

seems to me like some mini-notebooks, especially those running linux, might benefit from this chip as well; provided the chip doesn't cost too much.
On average a mininotebook costs about $200-$250 without the processor.
Hopefully Moorestown will be cheaper than a bridge/VPU/Processor in one; meaning hopefully they'll stay under $150 to be used in the mini-notebook segment.
