I am skeptical that the emulation can achieve reasonable speeds. I would like to see first that Qualcomm’s chips are even up to par with Intel's. Secondly, can a heavy duty Win32 app like iTunes or TurboTax or Photoshop could run reasonably fast via emulation, something that has historically been a problem.

I'll believe it when I see some benchmarks.

They are, at least with the mainstream Macbook Air-type/older Mac Pro type chips, not the latest and most expensive Core i7's, obviously. But they don't need to reach that high, either. Even taking over the Celeron/Pentium market from Intel would probably make Qualcomm bigger than AMD is in the PC chip market.
