At Mobile World Congress 2014, AirWatch and Citrix became the latest companies to support Intel® Device Protection Technology (Intel® DPT). Intel DPT includes both security and manageability extensions for Android. The security extensions are implemented at the kernel level to allow trusted security solutions to help secure devices and proactively block malware delivered through malicious applications and websites. The manageability extensions provide IT increased levels of control because it separates personal information from corporate data, helping protect against data leakage while safeguarding personal content on the device.

At IDF in September 2013, Intel announced it was working with key partners to bring 64-bit enterprise tablets to market. Last night at Mobile World Congress, HP introduced the first 64-bit Intel® Atom™ processor-based tablets, the HP ElitePad 1000 and the HP ProPad 600. Based on the 22nm Intel Atom processor Z3000 series, the 64-bit capability in these two new Windows* tablets allows IT departments to deliver enterprise-class applications and security across Windows PCs and tablets – speeding deployment and reducing total cost of ownership. The HP ElitePad is expected to be available in March for a starting price of $739. The HP ProPad is expected to be available in April. Pricing will be set closer to availability.

From smart earbuds, Intel® RealSense™ technology, a smart baby onesie and an SD card-sized computer to traditional devices like tablets, 2 in 1s, and all-in-ones, Intel won 9 awards at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). In addition, its OEM partners picked up over 20 wins for products powered by 4th generation Intel® Core™ and the latest 22nm 64-bit enabled Intel® Atom™ 3000 processors. The new Intel® Edison, a tiny, ultra-power-efficient computing platform the size of an SD card, won several awards including 2014 CES Hot Stuff Awards, PC Pro's Best of CES 2014, and Best Enabling Technology at CES 2014 by Gotta Be Mobile. The smart baby onesie from Rest Devices that can monitor and transmit important data of the baby powered by Intel® Edison won Best Kid-Friendly Product in Engadget's Best of CES 2014. And the Intel smart earbuds was named one of Wired’s Top 10 Gadgets at CES. As CEO Brian Krzanich said in his opening keynote address, Intel wants to “make everything smart.”

Laptop Magazine named the new 64-bit Intel® Atom™ Processor Z3000 Series SoC (code named Bay Trail) its 2013 Game Changer Award Winner. As the publication wrote, “Made with the same 22-nanometer manufacturing process as Intel’s 4th generation Core series, Bay Trail processors offer plenty of power for real productivity, media playback and casual gaming. Yet because of their low-power design — and Intel’s aggressive pricing — quad-core Bay Trail CPUs appear in a new-generation of budget-minded Windows tablets.” Several tablets based on this award winning design are available this holiday season. Check them out here.
