    Mooretown looks like it will at least beat out the current crop of mobile processors, but what about the next generation? Motorola is supposed to have a 2GHz processor in a phone before the year's end (http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/10/motorola-wants-... and HTC is supposed to have a 1.5GHz dual-core snapdragon for next year (Glacier?).

    Right now is a bad time to buy a phone. .)

    If I recall intel made a big deal about Moblin being used instead of Android for Android wasn't built from the ground up for the energy efficient intel Atom SoC. The software stack wasn't optimized for intel's architecture, because of this Android would have much worse battery life compared to Mobilin. Have they fixed this, or is there another reason they went with Android? Reply

    As a tech demonstartion I have so big questions.
    1. Wny not Mego Linux? I though Intel was pushing that? Android currently isn't well suited to tablets.
    2. Why the low resolution? HD resolution seems to be the new standard everywhere. Why put a 720p panel on a tablet?

    I am just not seeing anything reall exciting here. Samsung has a it's new dual core ARM based SOC out as does Qualcom. How will this shape up to the new Cortex A9 and don't forget the A15.
    Intel and Microsoft seem totally lost in the mobile space at this time. I know they both have huge pots of money to throw at it but will they make the effort?
    After all these are low margin products. Maybe they will make the same judgement call that DEC, DataGerneral, and Unisys did and decided that this small low margin market just isn't worth the effort.

    What you are saying about Android not being suitable for Tablets is interesting. The latest headlines indicate that Google *may* install Chrome OS on Tablets. *If* that happens, Meego might gain approval with people that dislike the idea of a Browser based operating system. Reply

    I could just be the availability of parts. Does anyone sell a 7" 720p screen? It's be the same DPI as a 4" 800x480 screen, so in theory any of the companies selling high end smart phone screens could do it, which isn't to say they've made prototypes already and could switch to volume production in time for the scheduled launch date.
