    Tom Lantzsch, ARM's executive vice president of corporate strategy, recently had some intriguing predictions to share. He believes we will see 64-bit Android smartphones coming to market by Christmas of this year. Lantzsch points out that even if Google doesn't provide a 64-bit version of Android by that time, existing 32-bit code will still run more efficiently on the 64-bit architecture.

    Lantzsch shared,

    In reference to the heightened pace of bringing 64-bit to the mobile market, he added,

    It seems that when Apple dropped the bomb-shell of a 64-bit processor coming in the iPhone 5S, it spurred the industry to leap forward. It's amazing how quickly mobile technology has evolved compared to PC technology. While mobile tech is still a few years behind current PC tech, the pace at which mobile tech has progressed easily exceeds how long it took for PCs to advance. This is especially true when you compare how quickly the two industries moved to 64-bit computing.

    Of course, you can't have one without the other, so it's only because of PCs that mobile even exists, so you could easily argue that mobile devices are just the natural evolution of PCs. Share your perspective.
