Intel is promising a range of next-generation wireless products, including improvements to the next Pentium M processor, a computing platform based on Intel Centrino mobile technology and processors for cell phones and PDAs.

Delegates at the Intel Developer Forum in San Jose heard Anand Chandrasekher, vice president and co-general manager of Intel’s Mobile Platforms Group, talk about what the company has done for mobile computing so far with Centrino and what it plans to do in the future.

“Intel and the industry have delivered on the promise of mobility,” he said. “More than 130 PC designs based on Intel Centrino mobile technology are expected to be available on the market by the end of this year, and Intel has verified the interoperability of Intel Centrino mobile technology with leading WLAN service providers who operate more than 20,000 hotspots worldwide. We will build on this success and drive continued growth in wireless mobility with our leading-edge manufacturing, new products and platform innovations.”

Included in this is the new 855GME chipset, which offers power-saving features and can help deliver enhanced graphics and memory performance for Centrino-based notebooks. The chipset features Intel’s Display Power Saving Technology (DPST), which can help maintain a screen’s appearance to the end user while reducing power consumption.

“With the new Intel 855GME chipset, Intel has helped reduce display power consumption and enable power savings for mobile PCs,” said Chandrasekher.

Intel will continue to enhance mobile PCs based on Intel Centrino mobile technology later this year with 802.11a/b and 802.11b/g wireless networking components and the next-generation Intel Pentium M processor, code-named Dothan.

For next year, it is promising a new mobile platform, code-named Sonoma, in the second half of 2004, based on Centrino which will include a future Pentium M processor, integrated 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN capability, and a new chipset, code-named Alviso. The chipset will include a new graphics engine.
