CES 2012: Intel and Motorola Mobility sign strategic mobile partnership

By Telecom Lead Team: Intel Corporation and Motorola Mobility
have entered into a multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship that
includes smartphones and tablets which Motorola will begin shipping later this
year using Intel Atom processors and the Android platform.


Our long-term relationship with Motorola Mobility will
help accelerate Intel® architecture into new mobile market segments. We expect
the combination of our companies to break new ground and bring the very best of
computing capabilities to smartphones and tablets, which in turn will help to create
powerful new experiences that connect and enrich people’s lives wherever they
may be,” said Intel
President and CEO Paul Otellini.


The collaboration will combine Intel’s silicon processor
technology and computing innovation with Motorola’s mobile device design
expertise to deliver products that have the high performance, long battery life
and convenience necessary for increasingly mobile lifestyles.


We are delighted to be partnering with Intel to deliver
smartphones and tablets based on Intel’s Atom processor to consumers and
businesses. Though there are 5 billion mobile subscribers in the world, less
than 800 million are using a smartphone today. With Android as the leading
smartphone OS globally and advancements in computing technology we see
tremendous opportunity for the converged devices market,” said Sanjay Jha,
Chairman and CEO, Motorola Mobility.


The strategic relationship between Intel and Motorola
Mobility will expand opportunity for continued innovation in these areas as
they work closely to leverage Intel’s low power system-on-chip (SoC) roadmap
for Motorola Mobility’s converged mobile device portfolio.


The collaboration will cover hardware, software and
services to deliver complete solutions and disruptive new user experiences that
offer long battery life, increased computing performance, advanced imaging and
video capabilities, and seamless wireless connections.


Few days back, Motorola Mobility joined the HomeGrid Forum’s growing membership. With the
membership, Motorola is expected to take an active role in promoting G.hn
technology as a global standard for fast, powerful wireline home networking.
