Fudzilla, Apple have informed Intel that Moorestown needs to have one-tenth the idle power consumption it manages currently before it'll be suitable for any of Apple's devices.
The rejection will come as a blow for Intel, whose Atom range has been a mainstay of PC netbooks over the past eighteen months. A win with Apple for mobile or lower-power devices would have opened up a whole new market; Intel have previously suggested that Moorestown would be ideal for high-end smartphones.
Moorestown is also expected to find a place in MIDs, and it's feasible that Intel might have been hoping to see the platform inside Apple's much-rumored tablet. Instead, it's likely that any mobile device from Apple in the near future will use a PA Semiconductor chip, the handiwork of a company Apple themselves own.
