No Intel mobile price cuts coming until June, say moles

Recession delays new-tech introductions too

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Intel has told notebook makers it won't be reducing what it charges for mobile processors and chipsets until well into Q2, at the earliest.

Market moles cited by DigiTimes say cuts could come in June, with reductions of 13-40 per cent planned by the chip maker.

That will undoubtedly see the launch of 'Calpella', the next major Centrino roll-out, pushed back, the sources said. And, indeed, that's exactly what we see when we look at Intel's latest roadmap: a late Q3 launch for Calpella and 'Clarksfield', the mobile version of the Core i7.

Calpella looks set to ship in September, a couple of months after its anticipated release date.

Clearly, Intel doesn't believe rushing out new technology will persuade punters to purchase new portables - which is why it looks to have nudged back the next-gen Atom release too.

It's interesting that the chip giant doesn't see lower prices as a way to kick-start sales, either. ®
