Intel is taking a look in the crystal ball and according to them, it has mobile computing written all over it. In a wide ranging story covering mobile computers, UMPCs, MIDs, WiMax, and much more, Intel certainly lets us know where their focus has been in 2007 as they prepare for 2008. We’ll be spending some time with Intel at CES, so we’ll bring you some more on their MID and mobility plans.
Hmmm…”GottaBeMobile”…looks like we are on the right track :-)
Intel expects the year 2008 to be a hallmark year for mobile computing and Internet accessibility.
Outlining trends for the year ahead, the global chip maker said that people are likely to continue to access their favourite Web sites but increasingly, they will want to do that Ã¢â‚¬Ëœon the go,’ as part of a dynamic, mobile lifestyle.
The company claimed that over the past year, online social networking has gained momentum thanks to companies like Second Life, Facebook and Linked-In, while online video consumption has increased dramatically over the last year, as movie-lovers downloaded more digital files than ever before.
““In 2008, people are likely to continue to access their favourite Web sites but increasingly they will want to do that Ã¢â‚¬Ëœon-the-go’, as part of a dynamic, mobile lifestyle,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Khaled Elamrawi, Intel general manager, Egypt, Levant and North Africa.
