End of The Wintel Era :Android Power Intel Phones in 2012

Android phones featuring Intel chips should be available in the first half of 2012, Intel executives said on Tuesday at its annual developer conference in San Francisco.
While Microsoft showed off Windows running on ARM-based systems, Intel and Google on Tuesday launched a development partnership to get the Android mobile operating system to run on Intel's lower-powered Atom chips.

The Wintel Era refers to MicroSoft Power Windows and Intel Powered Chips  for Desktops and PC which dominated the market  for  almost two decades. The power of Microsoft Software and Intel's hardware came together and this combination made them " unbeatable.  The Wintel Ear nows shows signs of breaking down as Android and Intel comes together to rule the Smartphone and Tablet Markets  of Today.

The move is the latest effort by Intel to get into the booming smartphone market, where processors based on the ARM architecture devised by the Cambridge-based company of the same name dominate.

Google and Intel say they will work together to optimise future versions of Google's Android mobile software for Intel's Atom processors, hoping to speed the development and time-to-market of future Intel-powered smartphones.

The move could jump-start Intel's efforts to expand into the market for mobile phones and touchscreen tablet devices at a time when sales of PCs are slowing in mature markets such as North America and Europe.

Intel is in a position establish a stronghold on the tablet market, similar to the one it has with PCs, if Intel's new Atom chip takes hold with Google's support. Currently, processors by U.K.-based ARM Holdings are used predominantly in smartphones and tablets because they don't drain batteries like Intel's chips.

But many PC users trust Intel processors, and a new Intel chip that works well in smartphones and tablets without draining their batteries may sway those PC users to buy mobile devices with Intel processors.

Internet Explorer 10 Preview By Microsoft



Microsoft has released the first platform preview for Internet Explorer 10, less than a month after the launch its much-hyped Internet Explorer 9 browser.

The technology giant unveiled IE10 earlier today at its Mix11 developer conference in Las Vegas. The preview, which is now available for download, isn’t a reinvention of the browser (Microsoft’s goal with IE9), but rather a continuation of the work it did in hardware acceleration, HTML5 and CSS3.

Mashable reports that “IE10 builds on full hardware acceleration and continues our focus on site-ready Web-standards,” said Dean Hachamovitch, IE’s corporate vice president, in an announcement. “This combination enables developers to deliver the best performance for their customers on Windows while using the same, Web-standard markup across browsers.”

Microsoft released IE9 on March 14 after 40 million downloads during its beta. IE9 has been well received: At its peak, IE9 was downloaded 27 times per second. Still, Microsoft knew that it couldn’t rest on its laurels. Mozilla’s Firefox 4 browser was downloaded 5,000 times per minute during its first day of availability, and Google Chrome is already at version 11.
