The microprocessor major has recently collaborated with Orange in France and Lenovo in China
NEW DELHI, INDIA: The chipset giant Intel has set its eyes at the burgeoning telecom industry. Despite being a late entrant into the telecom space, the silicon major is optimistic and said that it would help device manufacturers with unparallel computing experience.
The recent Intel Atom-powered Lava Xolo X900 device may be a face saver for the latter, but the former's magnificent plans are well poised to usher yet another smartphone war. With it's foray into the
cellphone arena, Intel is all set to boost Rs 10,000 onwards smartphone market.
Speaking to CIOL, Intel South Asia director (marketing) Sandeep Aurora said that they are gearing up to enable a variety of device makers with Atom-powered chips. "We are working on chipset design that will facilitate low cost to high-end smartphone devices," he informed.
The company, without naming any partner, said that they are working with everybody in the mobile device domain. "A lot of R&D is going on and within six months from now, new Intel Atom-powered cellphones will come to fore," Aurora said.
The microprocessor major, as a global strategical shift, has recently collaborated with Orange in France and Lenovo in China for mobile devices.
