Intel announces new Atom processor for smartphones and Internet tablets

6 May

Intel has unveiled a new low-power consuming Atom processor based platform, which was formerly known as Moorestone. Intel aims to target the growing high-end smartphone and Internet tablet market with this offering, which the company claims will give such portable devices up to 10 days of standby time, two days of audio playback and about 4-5 hours of Internet browsing or video playback.

This new Z6xx processor can be clocked up to 1.5 GHz for smartphones and 1.9 GHz for Internet tablets. Intel claims that this platform supports Android and MeeGo operating systems and come with Wi-Fi, WiMAX and 3G/HSPA connectivity. This platform will compete with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset, which has already been implemented in a number of smartphones and is also expected to power a slew of upcoming Internet tablets.
