Seems like they just slapped their label on Intel's Reference design. Nice strategy by Intel. If phone vendors arent interested in using Intel chip, just let carrier launch their own brand with the a Ref. design.
These design wins are just a ticket for Intel to enter. The Intel smartphone brands will not be well known. A mis-step in the carrier package plan could nip it in the bud.
Intel like to control these things which are not in their control.
So it won't be long before Intel will seek to govern the carriers, perhaps eventually acquiring them. In this way they would defy the history of AT&T breakup.
This is a major milestone for Intel processor to be in the mobile device market. Congratulation, Intel!
Intel based would make the phone be easily converted to Windows based or Linux. Getting the peripheral working may be a challenge. Let's see how soon the phone is hacked.
Like everybody else, I am very interested in learning the operational time in 1 full charge of battery.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
