Samsung, ARM, TI, Sony, AMD, Imagination, LG, STMicro, ST Ericsson etc etc etc... are academic guys without real hardware ?
Nope. These are companies which cough up few millions here and there to make sure they'll be in the loop if this idea will actually reach some usable stage. Does not mean anything beyond that at this point.
Remember the last "next big revolution" (called EPIC if you forgot)? It also had an impressive names: Intel, HP, IBM (which wanted to use the opportunity to unify UNIX), etc.
They had really awesome slides! And really cool story. I'd say EPIC story. In the end we've got an epic fail, nothing more.
I'm not saying they'll fail but the fact remains: number of supporters and sizes of such supporters don't automatically equal success.
