If you are waiting for Intel’s chips to find their way to your smartphone, then you will have to probably wait a little longer. Intel’s much awaited debut in the smartphone space will now see a new, more delayed launch date, confirmed Intel CEO Paul Otellini.
The delayed push..
Intel, apparently, would want to direct most of its resources towards making chips that were to be used in smartphones and tablets and consume lesser power, than they do now. Hence, this bid would result in a delayed debut. At the Mobile World Congress in February, Otellini had mentioned that Intel powered smartphones would be out in the market early this year. However, now he predicts a 2012 entry for it.
Intel, however, has a bigger, more prolonged debut in mind. For one, Intel has three versions of its Atom chip lined up for a debut in various quarters of 2012; the Medfield processor-powered smartphones, being the first.
