Intel and Motorola Mobility Strike Multi-Year Strategic Mobile Partnership
Motorola Mobility to Begin Shipping Intel®-Based Smartphone in 2H 2012
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW — Intel Corporation and
Motorola Mobility, Inc. (NYSE:MMI) announced that the two companies were
entering into a multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship that
includes smartphones which Motorola will begin shipping later this year
using Intel® Atom™ processors and the Android™ platform.
The collaboration, which also covers tablets, will combine Intel's
leadership in silicon processor technology and computing innovation with
Motorola's mobile device design expertise to deliver products that have
the high performance, long battery life and convenience necessary for
increasingly mobile lifestyles.
"When great silicon and software technology meets great mobile and
design innovation, amazing things can happen," said Intel President and
CEO Paul Otellini. "Our long-term relationship with Motorola Mobility
will help accelerate Intel® architecture into new mobile market
segments. We expect the combination of our companies to break new ground
and bring the very best of computing capabilities to smartphones and
tablets, which in turn will help to create powerful new experiences that
connect and enrich people's lives wherever they may be."
"We are delighted to be partnering with Intel to deliver smartphones and
tablets based on Intel's Atom processor to consumers and businesses,"
said Sanjay Jha, Chairman and CEO, Motorola Mobility. "Though there are
5 billion mobile subscribers in the world, less than 800 million are
using a smartphone today. With Android as the leading smartphone OS
globally and advancements in computing technology we see tremendous
opportunity for the converged devices market."
Smartphones and tablets are quickly becoming an indispensible part of
people's daily lives -- making them constant companions. The strategic
relationship between Intel and Motorola Mobility will expand opportunity
for continued innovation in these areas as they work closely to leverage
Intel's low power system-on-chip (SoC) roadmap for Motorola Mobility's
converged mobile device portfolio. The companies will collaborate across
hardware, software and services to deliver complete solutions and
disruptive new user experiences that offer long battery life, increased
computing performance, advanced imaging and video capabilities, and
seamless wireless connections.
