The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and technology analyst Evan Niu discuss topics across the investing world.

Intel is making big pushes into mobile this year with its Medfield-based Atom chips. They top dual-core ARM chips in performance benchmarks by a small margin, but also consume more power in the process. Intel has a lot of ground to catch up on -- can it make the grade?

Intel and other Internet leaders might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend.
