Intel has been showcasing its latest Centrino mobile technology platform at this weel’s Gitex Saudi Arabia. The new mobile platform, which was previously codenamed Sonoma, features office-friendly capabilities. It has the ability to transform a laptop into an integrated wireless communicator, gaming console, home theatre, MP3 player and vital business companion — all presented in a sleek mobile design. Intel unveiled its next-generation Centrino set-up at the beginning of the year. Sonoma replaces Intel’s 855 Dothan chipset with the new 915 chipset. This technology was only previously available on motherboards for desktop PCs and supports both dual-channel DDR2 memory and PCI Express. It will also support future PCI Express-based ExpressCards. Samir Al-Schamma, Intel’s general manager in the Gulf Countries, believes the new platform will help bring innovative capabilities for entertainment on the move to users in Saudi Arabia. “We are looking forward to continuing our awareness programmes about mobile computing and to working with regional companies to help create the content that will allow our users in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to optimise their benefit from these new technologies,” he says. “The Saudi Arabian market is a key focus for us in the region and we believe Gitex Saudi Arabia is an excellent forum to showcase Intel’s latest technologies, talk to our users in the Kingdom and meet other market players to discuss our collaboration moving forwards, as well as all playing our role in supporting the continued growth in the market,” he adds.
