Intel Focusing on Mobile World Congress with Atom Chips

EuroFight - February 1, 2013 01:37PM in Mobile

Intel has announced its intention to hold a booth at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Yesterday, Intel announced that it aimed to show off a previously unseen mobile dual-core, dual-graphics platform that it's developing. It will also showcase a number of Android cell phones on display running its low cost Atom Z2420 processor.

This continues Intel's attempt to gain traction in the mobile processor market, a field in which it has previously lagged behind the likes of ARM and Samsung, its main competitors. Intel aims to take back some of this market this year with the advent of a number of advancements in its Atom SoC technology. The company will also showcase a number of tablets and convertibles running the Windows 8 operating system.
