Intel CEO Paul Otellini addresses a capacity crowd during his keynote at the IDF show, saying that Intel's architecture will be the foundation of the future of computing.
SAN FRANCISCO—Intel CEO Paul Otellini, during his keynote at the Intel Developer Forum here Sept. 13, stressed the idea of a computing continuum, an idea he first brought up at the IDF event in 2009. Computing now is focusing on the user experience and the need for a consistent and secure experience that spans across the multiple devices the user has, from smartphones to tablets to PCs. Energy efficiency and battery life are keys to that experience, and are a continuing focus of Intel's efforts, Otellini said. In addition, Intel is continuing to push its way into the mobile computing space currently dominated by low-power chips from ARM. Intel is promoting its ultrabook concept of a device that marries tabletlike features—including long battery life and instant-on—with the capabilities of traditional notebooks. Intel also got a significant boost in its ambitions to muscle into the smartphone space when it announced a partnership with Google, which will optimize future versions of its Android mobile OS for Intel's low-power Atom platform.
