Intel Corporation’s chief product officer today described how its low-power processors, starting with the company’s 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family available next year, will set a new standard for mobile computing experiences and innovative Ultrabook™, convertible and tablet designs.
Speaking at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, David (Dadi) Perlmutter said Intel reduced the platform idle power of its 4th generation Intel Core processor family based on the next-generation “Haswell” microarchitecture by more than 20 times over the 2nd generation while delivering outstanding performance and responsiveness. He also said Intel will add a new line of even lower-power processors based on the same microarchitecture to its roadmap starting in 2013.

Samsung was also showing off the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet. It is the worlds first tablet to feature the Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus display technology.

Our focus this year for the Sony booth was the Japanese electronics giant’s new line of Android tablets. The Tablet S is a 9.7″ tablet with a unique wedged edge developed as the result of rigorous user testing and feedback. The wedge helps the user better balance the unit by shifting weight to one had without increasing the overall weight of the device. The Tablet P is Sony’s newest design, a clamshell tablet with dual screens. For both, Sony used screen designs from its line of televisions in order to deliver the highest quality viewing experience. ThinkComputers’ Colin Dean speaks with Sony’s Otis Gates about this line of tablets.
