    2014: Year of the Intel Smartphone

    The real mobility revelation came June 4, when Intel unveiled unreleased devices powered by its 22nm Atom system-on-a-chip (SoC)—a quad-core monster that could deliver a 50 percent improvement in overall performance and 300 percent boost in graphics compared to the current generation of Atom chips, at least according to Intel.

    The Merrifield SoC also carries an integrated hub for a range of location and environmental sensors, as well as tweaks to device management and security. Merrifield-powered phones won’t hit the market until “Barcelona 2014,” according to Tom Kilroy, the Intel executive making the presentation at Computex, presumably referring to the annual Mobile World Congress conference that takes place in Spain.

It means that things are about to get very interesting in the very near future. February is not so far off and deals have to be getting made or already have been made due the development and production times. Eight months is so little time that even Wall Street should be able to get their heads around the fact that big change is due in mobility and that 2014 will indeed be the Year of the Intel Smartphone, starting big time in February...]
