Apple Buys Intrinsity Inc. Chip Technology

As far back as Feb. 2nd 2010,  I wrote about the "Apple iPad - The A4 Hidden Gem" that would likely have far reaching implications in mobile devices.  The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple has acquired Intrinsity Inc. of Austin, Texas,  for  $121 million, mere chump change for Apple. Intrinsity's technology is used in the A4 Chip and boosts performance in mobile devices, thus increasing battery time to 10 hours in the iPad, for example.  

Get set to see this chip power more mobile devices from Apple, including the iPhone, which could really use a boost in battery efficiency and power.  Perhaps we might see this appear in the next generation iPhone due out this summer.  

What do you think?
