At Computex in Taipei, Taiwan, Intel unveiled new products and features based on its low-power Intel Atom processor family, including plans to further differentiate the popular netbook category and expand into several new market segments beyond its growing PC, laptop and server businesses.
At the event Intel announced a collaboration with Google, Sony and Logitech to deliver a new Smart TVs experience powered by Intel Atom CE products and running Android-based Google TV. The chip giant had recently unveiled the future System on Chip (SoC) Atom-based "Tunnel Creek" that allows other companies to connect their own custom silicon to Intel’s SoC product. The Intel Atom processor also powers the Intel Reader, which allows users with reading-based learning disabilities or visual impairments have convenient and flexible access to a variety of printed materials.
During his keynote at the event, David (Dadi) Perlmutter, EVP and co-general manager, Intel Architecture Group said "With platforms ranging from compact and portable netbooks, to Smart TV experiences and innovative tablets designs, Intel Architecture is driving innovative products based on a unique ‘port of choice’ software strategy."
At the event Intel also showcased the world’s thinnest netbook running on the upcoming mobile dual-core "Pine Trail".
