Intel Says Smartphones with Intel Inside to Appear in 2012
Speaking at an investor conference, Intel CEO Paul Otellini said that the first smartphones with Intel chips inside are on track to become available next year. "You'll see the first Intel-based phones in the market in the first part of next year," Otellini said. Intel has been unable to crack the smartphone market so far, which has fallen to its competitors. It has introduced several new chips this year that it is targeting at smartphones, including the X-GOLD 706 baseband processor, which is compatible with the 3GPP2 Release 8 specification and supports Long Term Evolution. Otellini didn't say which manufacturer has picked Intel's chips.
