    The Intel executive who led Intel’s so-far-unsuccessful push into smartphones and tablets quit as that business comes under unrelenting competitive pressure from companies like Apple, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments.
    Anand Chandrasekher, who had been senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Ultra Mobility Group, announced today that he will be leaving Intel to “pursue other interests.” Effective immediately, Mike Bell and Dave Whalen, both vice presidents of Intel Architecture Group (IAG), will co-manage the group, which is responsible for building Atom chips that go into smartphones and tablets.
    This follows the departure last year of Eric Kim, who headed another team–Intel’s Digital Home Group–that targeted the Atom processor for consumer products such as TVs.

    “Intel remains committed to this business,” said David Perlmutter, executive vice president and IAG general manager, in a statement, referring to smartphones. “We continue to make the investments needed to ensure that the best user experience on smartphones and handhelds runs on Intel architecture, and to ship a phone this year,” he said.
