Intel is making some bold claims about its new Z-series of processors (Pocket-Lint). They've just announced that, by the end of the year, these new Atoms will allow smartphones that can last as long as ten days without a charge. In all, this new processor will allow 10 days of standby, 6 hours of 3G talk time, and 2 full days of music playback.

The Z-series of chips have been optimized to drain the least amount of power possible. Intel has found a way to turn on and off specific elements of the chip when (and only when) they are needed. Out of the box, a handset with the new Z-600 will be able to post up to 1.5 GHz speeds for handsets, and 1.9 GHz speeds for tablets.

Speed isn't everything though. The Z-series will also be able to display 1080p, run multiple 5 MP camera sensors, handle HDMI-out and, one presumes, clean the kitchen sink. Look for this processor to hit in 2H2010.
