by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 18, 2012
Some might argue that Intel is not a major player in the smartphone and tablet processor market anyway, which is dominated by the likes of Qualcomm, Nvidia, Samsung and Apple.

Intel working on new Atom lineup, but it won’t be available until end of 2013

by: Gary SimsAugust 31, 2012
Known as Bay Trail, the new range of Atom CPUs will support out-of-order execution, something that the Atom chips haven't supported until now, but which has been available in some ARM chips for several years. The problem is that out-of-order execution uses up valuable die space with the additional transistors needed to implement it. This in turn increases the running temperature and power consumption. Some of these problems will be resolved by the use of the new 22nm manufacturing process.

Intel is purchasing 1,700 patents related to Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE technologies, from Interdigital, a company from which Google recently bought some patents as well. Intel paid $375 million for the whole bunch, which seems like a low price, considering that recently, 1,000 mobile related patents went for $1 billion.

Intel is no stranger to developing wireless technologies. They’ve been pushing Wi-Fi since its inception with their Centrino [...]
