Intel look beyond the chip
According to reports the intel CEO Paul Otellini has started off the company’s annual IDF conference today by announcing that Intel is on track to ship a 22-nanometer processor in 2011.
As going by what CEO says, it means the world’s biggest chip company is branching out from its core proficiency as a chip maker. Otellini says that they are in the process of changing how to develop and deliver solutions.
Shane Rau, an analyst at market research firm IDC has noted in an interview with Computerworld last month that Intel is looking to move beyond the chip. He even said that there is a bigger plans in the works.
According to Rau, Intel wants to provide more of the “stack” for mobile devices like the processor, security software and the operating system.
May be that’s exactly what Otellini said he is planning to do.
