SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 11, 2012 – Intel Corporation today announced the availability of the latest Intel classmate PCs that will be powered by the new Intel® Atom™ processors. The clamshell and convertible platforms will be updated with designs that boast new, enhanced applications.


The upcoming classmate PCs offer an enhanced user experience, increased ruggedness, improved battery life and are more affordable. The increased battery life means students may be able to work up to 10 hours on a single charge. The improved ruggedness stems from such features as strengthened corners for shock and vibration absorption, and a keyboard that can withstand prying fingers and improved water resistance.


"To succeed in today’s global economy, students need to develop 21st century skills like problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration,” said Kapil Wadhera, general manager of Intel's Education Market Platforms Group. “Technology solutions that are purpose-built for education play a key role in supporting the development of these skills, and we look forward to further enriching the education experience with our new platforms.”


The new multi-touch and premium writing experiences, in conjunction with palm rejection technology, enable students to write directly on screen. The textured touch screen, special stylus and handwriting recognition software create a “write on paper” experience. The built-in camera, photo view, media player, and drawing applications allow students to create and consume multimedia learning content.


The comprehensive classroom-ready features and capabilities include LabCam* and McAfee AntiVirus*. LabCam, a touch-optimized application consisting of six easy-to-use scientific inquiry tools leveraging the camera in different ways, allows students to analyze the visual data present in their photos and videos. McAfee AntiVirus has been added for proactive protection to keep students’ digital lives more secure. Enhancements include classroom management, theft deterrence and webcam companion with anti-shake features for media capture and management, noise filtering, digital archiving, and annotation. An enhanced access management feature has also been added to enable teachers to set appropriate student access in school and at home.


Notable OEMs for the new devices include ASI, Babilon Technologies, Compumax, Computek, CTL, Equus, JP SaCouto, Koodoo, Lanix, Lenovo, M&A, Mustek, NTT System, Paradigit Computers, Positivo, RM, Sigong, Stone and Viper.

Motorola Mobility to Begin Shipping Intel®-Based Smartphone in 2H 2012


INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, Las Vegas, Jan. 10, 2012 - Intel Corporation and Motorola Mobility, Inc. (NYSE: MMI) announced that the two companies were entering into a multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship that includes smartphones which Motorola will begin shipping later this year using Intel® Atom™ processors and the Android* platform.


The collaboration, which also covers tablets, will combine Intel's leadership in silicon processor technology and computing innovation with Motorola's mobile device design expertise to deliver products that have the high performance, long battery life and convenience necessary for increasingly mobile lifestyles.


"When great silicon and software technology meets great mobile and design innovation, amazing things can happen," said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini. "Our long-term relationship with Motorola Mobility will help accelerate Intel® architecture into new mobile market segments. We expect the combination of our companies to break new ground and bring the very best of computing capabilities to smartphones and tablets, which in turn will help to create powerful new experiences that connect and enrich people's lives wherever they may be."


"We are delighted to be partnering with Intel to deliver smartphones and tablets based on Intel's Atom processor to consumers and businesses," said Sanjay Jha, Chairman and CEO, Motorola Mobility. "Though there are 5 billion mobile subscribers in the world, less than 800 million are using a smartphone today. With Android as the leading smartphone OS globally and advancements in computing technology we see tremendous opportunity for the converged devices market."


Smartphones and tablets are quickly becoming an indispensible part of people's daily lives -- making them constant companions. The strategic relationship between Intel and Motorola Mobility will expand opportunity for continued innovation in these areas as they work closely to leverage Intel's low power system-on-chip (SoC) roadmap for Motorola Mobility's converged mobile device portfolio. The companies will collaborate across hardware, software and services to deliver complete solutions and disruptive new user experiences that offer long battery life, increased computing performance, advanced imaging and video capabilities, and seamless wireless connections.
