Check this out, this new Atom is supposed to be able to let a smartphone do 1.5Ghz! That’s basically as fast as a netbook is. Truly we’re moving more and more towards a computer in our pocket. This Atom will enable 1080p video and 3d graphics along with a ‘PC-Like’ experience in your pocket.
The new platform supports a range of scalable frequencies, up to 1.5 GHz for high-end smartphones and up to 1.9 GHz for tablets and other handheld designs. The chips also bring support for Wi-Fi, 3G/HSPA, and WiMAX, as well as a range of operation systems, including Android*, Meego* and Moblin*. Intel is bringing together a breadth of applications and ecosystem support across these platforms to enable a software- and Internet-compatible user experience for developers and consumers
