Intel targets smartphone market with new     platform
Intel is targeting the smartphone market with the roll out of a new platform aimed at making smartphone batteries run for longer.
The new Atom platform, known as Moorestown, sees the processing elements of the chips divided into nineteen power islands with areas of the platform that are not in use turned off to save energy.
A smartphone manufactured on the Atom chips would receive 10 days of standby power. It could run 48 hours of audio playback, six hours of 3G calls and five hours of 720p video.
Intel's head of handhelds Pankaj Kedia said: 'We've reduced the power so we are competitive in the smartphone space.' He added that the first smartphones to use the new Atom processors would be launched later this year.
