LG + Intel = Future Phone, Full Internet Device

LG and Intel today announced a partnership to bring a future mobile Internet Device, or, “MID,” that will offer phone capabilities, based on a chip we’re designing for 2009 or 2010 code-named “Moorestown.”

What does that mean? Intel’s Atom processor powered MIDs are based on the same blueprint, or architecture (often called x86 or Intel architecture), all of our laptop, PC and server processors have been based on for decades. Those chips run most of the computers we all use, and the Internet and networking backbone behind the scenes. There are a lot of cool MIDs already on the market around the world.

So, people who buy LG’s future MID will get a complete and fast Internet experience not unlike those experienced on older Intel-based laptops and PCs AND have a phone handy — all in something that fits in your pocket. No more wondering if a new application or website or software will work, or work too slowly. No more having to decide whether the Internet device or cell phone or both are more important.

Whether it be smart phones, other CE devices, high-def TVs, laptops or even their work in state of the art refrigerators and washers and dryers, LG is known as a leading-edge design innovator. It’s an honor to have a company like this as a future MID customer, complementing a lot of other Intel-based products the company offers.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    I’ll be joining college this year. I was thinking of buying a laptop, but now I think I’ll buy a Moorestown based MID for carrying around which will double as a phone. I’ll build an i7 desktop instead of buying a laptop, which should be much more powerful. Or should I wait for the 6-core Gulftown monster? I’m so excited. 🙂
    Can’t wait for Larrabee and HydraEngine!
