INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 19, 2007 - Intel Corporation executives today promised that the pending rollout of WiMAX, ongoing innovation to its popular Intel Centrino Duo processor technology for laptop products and a new category of Internet-connected devices will usher in a new era of reliable broadband-connected wireless computing starting next year. Under the mantra of smaller, faster and more energy-efficient computing, consumers will increasingly shift toward this combination of technologies to use the Internet for entertainment, business and content-heavy personalization on-the-go.
"Intel is the undisputed market leader today with notebook PCs by providing consumers with what they want in performance, battery life and a fully loaded internet experience," said David (Dadi) Perlmutter, Intel senior vice president and general manager, Mobility Group. "Mobile users have an insatiable appetite for and want even more mobility, connectivity and a full Internet on their smaller devices. Intel will satisfy those needs by delivering our latest 45nm processors and WiMAX to notebooks, as well as Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) in 2008, and also using some of these technologies to bring an affordable computing and Internet experience to emerging communities and economies around the world."
