Atom mobile processors and mobile devices have become one of the main topics of the Intel Developer Forum.
First, Intel launches the new Atom processor series. The E600
series, better known as Tunnel Creek
and announced at the winter IDF at the beginning of the year,
is a system-on-chip, designed for cars, network devices, Internet telephony and so on. On the basis of the E600 will be built a new Atom processor, codenamed Stellartron
. Stellartron is a system consisting of an Atom E600 and a CPVM (set of programmable logic) Altera - The Atom in this bundle is the universal heart, and the CPMP can be used for digital signal processing, telecommunications, and any other reprogrammable devices.
Secondly, there are processors Atom CE4200
series, previously known as Groveland
- they are designed for television and home entertainment centers. This is also a system on a chip that supports 3D graphics and (attention!) H.264 encoding of high-definition video streams - all this with minimal power consumption. Not surprisingly, Samsung and several other companies have announced plans to release set-top boxes based on CE4200.
German WeTab is the first tablet running on MeeGo OS.
Thirdly, the first prototypes of systems based on Atom processors running under the MeeGo operating system, such as WeTab
, are starting to appear
. It is especially pleasant that Renee James
, head of the Software and Software Group at Intel, showed working samples of “Russian netbooks and nettops” at the presentation
(see its presentation
at about 23:40).
Literally in front of the IDF, colleagues from the Moscow office of Intel helped us hold these devices in our hands and take pictures of them. Here they are:DNS
Netbook based on Intel N450 with HDMI, up to 2 GB RAM and optional 3G modem.3Q NTP
nettops on the Atom - 2–4 GB of RAM, 640 GB of disk space, black and white cases, 4 USB ports, the older model has an HDMI connector and the ability to install a WiMAX module:
Nettop IRU 113
with optional remote control:
Netbook Clevo M1100Q
based on the Atom N450 and N470 with optional 3.75G-modem:
In Russia, these devices will appear in the 4th quarter of this year - very soon. The local version of MeeGo will be handled by the Linux Center
