Intel tells us a bit more about how they see the future of the internet in the pocket with a demonstration of the Moorestown MID platform.
At the IDF in Taipei Intel showed the world's first working "Moorestown" platform demonstration.
Moorestown comprises of an SOC, codenamed "Lincroft," which integrates the 45nm processor, graphics, memory controller and video encode/decode onto a single chip and an I/O hub codenamed "Langwell", which supports a range of I/O ports to connect with wireless, storage, and display components in addition to incorporating several board level functions. Moorestown platforms will support a range of wireless technologies including 3G, WiMAX, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and mobile TV.
The time frame for the Moorestown MID release is 2009-2010. I am not quite sure yet how MIDs will actually compete or compare with smartphones. Just try to imagine what the iPhone will be in 2 years. Faster, smaller, thinner, DMB or DVB-H TV tuner?
More details on the Intel site. Via Engadget. In the IDF San Francisco coverage there are some concept videos of the Moorestown MID.
