According to The Taiwanese tech site, Intel has wooed some of the renowned brands like Lenovo, Acer, etc that have plans to launch smart phones and tablets in 2013. The brands are expected to use Intel's Atom chips. Intel is soon going to release the Atom chips for devices that run Google's Android mobile operating system.
Last year, Intel partnered with Lenovo and an Indian handset company Lava International that showcased the Atom-based smart phones for the first time. Intel's single-core, 1.2GHz Atom Z2420, code named Lexington was released at the end of January. DigiTimes has reported that it is being used by Acer, Lava and Safaricom to build new smart phones.
Despite Intel drawing attention, ARM offers a strong competition in the mobile industry in 2013. ARM Based chips have established a strong foothold in the industry by securing number one position in tablets that include Apple's iPad and most devices running Google's GOOG +0.52% Android operating system.
Intel now is looking for devices that use Android platform. However, Intel was recently focusing on devices that use Microsoft's MSFT +0.98% Windows 8 operating system.
Intel has also lacked chips that work on LTE cellular networks popular in industrialized countries, but Intel has now announced to come up with changes in a very short time.
