The 2nd quarter sales weren’t too great but Q3 proved to be different somehow albeit still not increasing. Revenues were $13.5 billion while $3 billion was the total net profit.
This isn’t surprising because the economy is really bad. The economic environment is so tough it’s a challenge to sell and especially if gadgets and technologies are ever-changing.
In the 4th quarter though, Intel CEO Paul Otellini is hopeful that sales will pick up as they will focus on phones, ultrabooks, and tablets.
