Intel Touts Ultrabooks, Mobile Move in Keynote
"Ultrabook" was the key word in Intel's CES keynote Tuesday afternoon, as CEO Paul Otellini touted the thin, compact, Intel-powered notebooks that have been all over the floor at this year's show.
Otellini, returning to the CES keynote stage after sitting out 2011, also announced a first-time move by company into mobile phones. He showed the "reference design" for Intel smartphones and tablets.
The CEO announced that a Lenovo smartphone, set to debut in China this spring, will be the first device of its kind to include Intel architecture. Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha, meanwhile, was brought on to announce a mobile alliance between that company and Intel.
