Intel hits Chinese smart phone market

Intel hits Chinese smart phone market

Intel apparently will put its Atom processors into two Lenovo smartphones next year, an important step as the x86 chip manufacturer plots to gain significant space in the mobile market.
One of the phone will be introduced in the huge Chinese market, a source told the Wall Street Journal, with another targeting other developing countries. Lenovo will include both an Intel 64-bit Atom processor and an LTE-Advanced modem chips in both phones.
The design wins, coming a few weeks before the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vega, are seen as an important first step into the Chinese market, which is rapidly embracing 4G technology.
Next year Intel is expected to introduce the new SoFIA 4G system-on-a-chip, or SoC, which include both the processor and modem together on the chip.
