Unlike its perennial partner Microsoft, which is going on hiatus from CES keynotes after this year, Intel continues to treat the Consumer Electronics Show as its big set-piece event for presenting new products to the public. This year's highlight was the development of ultrabooks: Intel's new category of ultra-thin and portable laptops was only sprouting up at IFA, but CES is where it flourished into a fully fledged market segment. Intel also revealed new Medfield-based smartphones, some fresh and innovative concept designs, and a couple of long-term partnerships with Motorola and Lenovo to produce mobile devices.
Here's your first look at a tablet running Intel's 32nm Clover Trail processor and Windows 8
We take a first look at the Lenovo K800, the first Intel-powered phone.
What's this? Intel just pulled out another device on stage, a Windows 8 slate, and says it's running on a 32nm SoC but didn't specify Medfield. Thankfully, a little bird (and a PR representative) tell us it's Clover Trail. Sorry, folks, that's really all we know right now.
Intel and Motorola announce a partnership to make phones and tablets. The first Intel Atom--powered Medfield phone will be coming to market in the second half of this year.
We've spotted a couple of devices today with Intel's new Medfield chip, and this evening the company is finally coming clean about its forthcoming Atom processor, which is now confirmed to be coming to Lenovo and Motorola phones and tablets later this year.
The floodgates have finally opened here at CES 2012 and we've just got done playing with Intel's reference design smartphone on the show floor.
Intel won't say who it's partnering with, but it just showed off a "Nikiski" laptop prototype at its CES 2012 keynote.
As part of its press conference this morning, Intel is demoing ultrabooks running on Ivy Bridge, complete with built-in NFC supported by the Mastercard Paypass system.
Intel has just announced that it intends to add touchscreen capabilties to future ultrabooks. Intel VP Mooley Eden said that "people want the real keyboard and touchscreen" and showed some demos of people reaching out to touch a Windows 7 laptop.
