Intel and Motorola Mobility took stage to announce their multi-year partnership contract. At the same time, Intel showcased a reference designed smartphone at 2012 International CES 2012 powered with Intel Atom Processor a.k.a Medfield. Motorola's CEO Sanjay Jha and Intel's CEO Paul Otellini says, that Motorola will introduce smartphones powered with Intel Atom Processor later this year. However, Motorola will also continue to use ARM processors in their devices. This may fetch a tough competition between processor manufacturers ARM and Intel in the coming days. Though Motorola didn't test Intel® Atom™ processors in the Android platform, this combination is likely to enhanced the device performance. Also, the 1.6Ghz processor can possibly handle multiple tasks and respond the user in a quick-time. The new collaboration will cover a convenient number of smartphones and tablets that answers different user mobile lifestyles.
“When great silicon and software technology meets great mobile and design innovation, amazing things can happen,” said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini. “Our long-term relationship with Motorola Mobility will help accelerate Intel® architecture into new mobile market segments. We expect the combination of our companies to break new ground and bring the very best of computing capabilities to smartphones and tablets, which in turn will help to create powerful new experiences that connect and enrich people’s lives wherever they may be.”
Sanjay Jha, Chairman and CEO, Motorola Mobility says, “We are delighted to be partnering with Intel to deliver smartphones and tablets based on Intel’s Atom processor to consumers and businesses. “Though there are 5 billion mobile subscribers in the world, less than 800 million are using a smartphone today. With Android as the leading smartphone OS globally and advancements in computing technology we see tremendous opportunity for the converged devices market.”
