Put your questions to Intel chief

Chips on wafer (Intel)
One wafer can hold hundreds of the chips at the heart of each computer

This is your chance to put a question to Paul Otellini, chief executive of Intel, who will be interviewed by BBC News next week.

Intel remains the world's dominant chip manufacturer for personal computers.

In June, the firm formed a partnership with the dominant manufacturer of mobile phone handsets Nokia, paving the way for a strong move into the mobile sector as well.

And while Intel keeps planning billions of dollars' worth of infrastructure and posting profits in times that are economically straitened for much of the industry, the company has suffered its setbacks.

In May, Intel got slapped by the EU with a decidedly unfavourable anti-competition ruling and a record fine amounting to over a billion euros.

Would you like to ask Mr Otellini a question about the current state of the art or the future of microprocessor chips?

Interested to hear his thoughts on just how Intel will break into the mobile space? Or why it is that it didn't get into the mobile space at the ground level years ago?

What about the anti-competition ruling? Or Intel's cheap Classmate PC, a rival to the famed XO $100 laptop? Or WiMAX, the next-generation mobile broadband solution that Intel is bankrolling against stiff competition from the mobile industry's LTE?
