I'm here at Fall VON 2007, listening to Intel's Shane Wall, CTO of the Ultra Mobility Group.
We want to make sure we maintain performance compatibility. We want to make sure we deliver lower thermals, power consumption and package size.
In 2008 Intel will introduce Menlow, will drive power levels down by 10x. Will fit into small handheld form factor.
Showed a current wafer, over 2,500 dyes, 45 nanometer process. We don't expect with Menlo it will stop at just a processor.
Shows a half-mini card, willintegrate WiMax, GPS 802.11n and Bluetooth. We will also be offering 3G solutions. All of these together, a Silverthorne Processor, mini card options, will be offered in an integrated package.
Wall said a series of enabled devices will be announced and shown in January at the Consumer Electronics Show
Intel has started mobile internet device alliance.
