    In his keynote today at the Intel Developer Forum in Taiwan, Intel's senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Ultra Mobility Group discussed how technology innovation and strong industry collaboration have driven the digital economy over the past 40 years, and the universal impact that the Internet and mobile Web has had in people's lives. Also highlighted was the progress Intel is making in the Mobile Internet Devices (MID) market segment with the world's first working "Moorestown" platform demonstration. Scheduled for the 2009-2010 timeframe, the Moorestown prototype comprises of an SOC, codenamed "Lincroft," which integrates a 45nm processor, graphics, memory controller and video encode/decode onto a single chip and an I/O hub codenamed "Langwell". Langwell supports a range of I/O ports to connect with wireless, storage, and display components in addition to incorporating several board level functions. The Moorestown platform will support a range of wireless technologies including 3G, WiMAX, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and mobile TV. During his keynote Chandrasekher also stated that Intel hopes to revolutionize the MID world with Moorestown when released.

    I cant imagine them marketing a mobile device that large, maybe the picture is just enhancing the size and its only like 4 inches :)

    I hope its not the size of your foot, or arm... :shadedshu

    Haha, maybe with a make-shift harness you could strap it to your arm and look like one of those futuristic people from the movies :p

    I think the mobile part is supposed to be portable and usable in place of a laptop kind of way instead of a replace your phone with a huge iphone kind of way.


    The impression I get from this product is more of something to integrate into a system or part of something else, so think of a car GPS, a computer controlled house, a portable DVD player, a cheap tablet PC, that kind of thing. Not so much a stand alone unit as a laptop or cell phone replacement.

    If ANYTHING, I need to start a business selling zoom-magnifying-reading-glasses FTW.
     
    $ReaPeR$, 1freedude and Analog_Manner say thanks.

    lemonadesoda: Main reason i posted a link to the website with pics is so that the forum who watermarked the photos would get credit, kinda against web ethic to capture the pics and have the techpowerup watermark covering the original watermark.

    LOTS of people where jumping on the wrong bandwagon. Goodness knows how they got the idea of the size of a forearm!?

    Pictures tell a thousand words.

    You could have put the pictures in yourself. But didnt. I came and helped out so people could see what it was all about. I used the "quickest" approach.

    The "watermark" is INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM. These are press release pictures. DONT GET UPPITY wasting everybody's time with "ethics" nonesense when it's not relevant (in this situation).

    do want. so bad.

    I'm seeing this as more of a touchscreen terminal than anything... universal remote, cordless keyboard, oh the possibilities.

    If done right, it could be a little cordless box you can program for anything - movie playback, remote control of other systems, cordless keyboard/mouse replacement (for another PC), etc

    Seems Intel is heading for imbedded everything, though this is more of an imbedded/integration design. I think the comment about this direction being used for cars, ultra portable PC, embedded computers, a gaming console that does "everything" etc. is spot on.

    Take the PSP and quadruple the power. That's just one possible example.

    Cool, but not something I would use.

    Should sell pretty well if the price is low enough, add a few games etc..
    Say goodbye PSP

    lemonade dont act so arrogant by first glimpse it looked big the other guys were having fun with it too. and im pretty sure like me the other guys also clicked on the link to see REALLY how big it was because the size of a for arm just isnt believable so stop traveling around the forum trying to bash people and acting like your so much more intelligent than anyone else because in all honesty dude you ARE NOT!

    kthnxbye.
