Coming Soon :Intel Inside Smartphones and Tablets

Intel has for a long time now  struggled to break into the mobile  and Tablet Market , including Smartphone. But if there were any doubts as to whether or not the company is in it for the long haul, this week’s announcements should put them to rest.  Intel finally decided to take the wrap out if its closet and  announced its foray into  one of the  most fiercly fought  technology arena . With this Intel will take on Apple, Samsung, RIM and the low cost  players HTC and  Huawei competitive ,

Intel's announcement  at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona,  has set  the stage for Intel to enter both Smartphones and Tablets by getting its chips into everything from inexpensive smartphones to high-end tablets.

The biggest announcement was the Clover Trail+ platform, which consists of three new Atom processors, the 2.0GHz Z2580, 1.6GHz Z2560 and 1.2GHz Z2520.
Intel currently has two mobile platforms:
Medfield for Android smartphones includes the 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 single-core with 400MHz PowerVR SGX 540 graphics. (Intel later added the low-end Z2420 used by Acer, Lava and Safaricom for smartphones in developing markets and the high-end Z2480 used in the Motorola Razr i.)
And the Clover Trail platform, which includes the 1.8GHz Atom Z2760 dual-core with 533MHz PowerVR SGX 545 graphics, is used in Windows 8 tablets from Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, LG and Samsung. All of these processors are manufactured on a 32nm process.
Inte's Clover Trail+ is primarily designed for Android smartphones. The first is the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900, which has a 5.5-inch 1080p display (more than 40 pixels per inch), the Atom Z2580, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP camera and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
