Intel is to segment its notebooks into high and low end offerings, and will attack the low end of the market with Celeron chips available in both 370 pin and cartridge versions. At his keynote speech at the Intel Developer Forum today, Robert Jecman, manager of mobile platforms, said that Intel would also introduce its .18 micron Coppermine technology for notebooks in the second half of next year. He also announced the release this week of a low power, four watts chip 266MHz with MMX processor. Jecman said: “There’s a clear differentiation in a number of areas between a $2,000 and a $1,299 notebook. Those include the processor, the screen size, and whether the screen is a TFT or DSTN screen. Our expectation in 1999 is that systems will be specifically designed for these markets.” He also revealed more details of Intel’s Bluetooth microwave technology, which he claimed will work across the world and enable notebooks to communicate more easily. “We’re hoping to have demonstrations of product by the end of next year,” he said. “We’re working PC OEMs and with people like Ericsson." Intel is also developing a complementary technology using radio frequency which will provide a longer range than Bluetooth, he said. That technology will also work with PCs, as well as notebooks and mobile phones. ®
