Intel is one of the only companies in the world that can provide solutions end-to-end for the full spectrum of mobility,” commented Krzanich.

Intel is bringing the benefits of integrated Intel architecture and wireless communications to customers, including the China technology ecosystem, with greater velocity. Twenty companies, including ASUS and Jolla, have committed to delivering Intel Atom x3 designs.

Customers, including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Toshiba, have already committed to deliver devices on Cherry Trail platform. The first devices are expected to be in the market in the first half of this year.
