Intel has designed a mobile handset

Written by Nick Farell


Will be manufactured by ZTE
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth rumour which claims that Intelhas designed a mobile handset.

The gear could be manufactured by China's ZTE. Apparently the gear has been based on a version of its Atom microprocessor and will be flogged in China. It has been difficult to find anyone who will confirm the rumour. Intel and ZTE are refusing to say anything about it.  However it does make sense. Chipzilla has been trying for months to get smartphone makers to take its Atom chip seriously. It fears that people will lose interest in the PCs so it wants to push into consumer markets.

A handset in China, if cheap enough, would open the door to other manufacturer to take Atom seriously for phone use. Yesterday it announced that the Oak Trail version of Atom is shipping and finding its way into netbooks and tablets.

"open the door to other manufacturer to take Atom seriously"

Nobody will ever take Atom seriously, maybe Medfield but Intel have gone very quiet on this and Terga 3 just around the corner and then 28nm products, Intel have got their work cut out.

Atom is a sinking ship.

AMD Zacate is the way to go.

Faster and more efficient. That is 40nm, 28nm version coming soon and it has been taped out.
