Motorola to Use Intel Atom CPU in Smartphones and Tablets
      #41989 - 01/10/12 08:27 PM


Intel and Motorola Mobility today announced that the two companies were entering into a multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship that includes smartphones which Motorola will begin shipping later this year using Intel Atom processors and the Android platform. The collaboration also covers tablets. No more info on special devices, but here is what two companies are hoping to achieve:

Smartphones and tablets are quickly becoming an indispensible part of people's daily lives -- making them constant companions. The strategic relationship between Intel and Motorola Mobility will expand opportunity for continued innovation in these areas as they work closely to leverage Intel's low power system-on-chip (SoC) roadmap for Motorola Mobility's converged mobile device portfolio. The companies will collaborate across hardware, software and services to deliver complete solutions and disruptive new user experiences that offer long battery life, increased computing performance, advanced imaging and video capabilities, and seamless wireless connections.

I still don't understand, if Intel wants to make processors for mobile devices, then why did they ever sell off XScale? Atom processors may be inexpensive and use little electricity, but they are going to have to get a LOT faster if they want to be a serious competitor.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see, especially on the smartphone side giving the complexity of working with cellular networks like 4G LTE.
