The Computex expo has given us one of the first proof of concept devices running the new Intel Moorestown processor chip. The device itself is manufactured by Aava, who we have covered in some depth before. Aava is collaborating with Intel to take the Moorestown platform to market with a range of customers and service providers. The two companies are working on smartphone reference designs covering Android, Moblin, and MeeGo.

The bad news is that the video recorded by Engadget (after the jump) does not show the device running quicker than any other higher-end device on the market right now. Indeed, it is alleged to run slower than the Snapdragon, which is the processor chip that many of these devices run off. The gain may be in battery life, but right now it is very early days for the initiative, so we look forward to seeing improvements on all fronts.
