Top three mobile application threats

Computex A wall of 810 motherboards on Intel's stand at Computex was rivalled today only by a wall of silence on the FlexATX form factor. Earlier this year, senior VPs at Intel US, including Paul Otellini and Pat "Kicking" Gelsinger told The Register that sexy PC designs could appear as early as August. (Story: Intel FlexATX mobo to use 810 chipset). But while there were plenty of 810 machines hanging on Intel's walls, we couldn't spot a single FlexATX. But a comprehensive search not only in the main halls but also the nooks and crannies of Computex revealed nothing. Several motherboard manufacturers we talked to claimed that FlexATX was still very much in development. Typically, Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers show their wares in good time for the pre-Noel rush. So where are they hiding? And why the wall of silence? In another fruitless seach, we were unable to discover socketed Pentium IIIs. It is not like Taiwanese manufacturers to stay coy about important future developments like this. ®
