Mobile devices, wearable devices and the Internet of things (IoT) are key growth areas for Intel and were major topics at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in China. During the conference, Intel executives announced that the giant chip maker is creating a $100 million fund and opening an innovation center in China to help fuel the development of smart devices and to engage the Chinese tech ecosystem in the effort. At the same time, CEO Brian Krzanich showed off a new device for the IoT and gave IDF attendees a look at the revamped Edison, a development platform for small, energy-efficient systems. Company officials also spoke about Intel's continued efforts in the mobile space, including its tighter embrace of Google's Android mobile OS. Intel released KitKat 4.4 with a kernel optimized for Intel's 64-bit systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) and created a portal for Android developers. At the same time, executives talked about the work Intel is doing around PCs, including the company's upcoming 14-nanometer "Braswell" SoC for entry-level desktops and notebooks. (Photos by Intel)
