  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 5:50:54 AM

    The stage is set.

  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 5:54:30 AM
    A mixture of devices around the edges of the stage. A Transformer, the TaiChi, Some tablets, a 'secured' device...
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 5:56:02 AM
    Mr Yuen-Chuan Chao, President & CEO of TAITRA, is doing the introductions. This is technically the 'opening keynote' of Computex. He says Computex has firmly become the world's top ICT show.
  • Chris ... ok my coffee is... 6/5/2012 5:56:29 AM
    I hope they disclose when the Clover Trail chips will be available to all PC ODMs.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 5:58:42 AM
    Prepping for start of Intel now. Video begins. Ooooh. I hear thunder.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 5:58:58 AM
    "It's the beginning of a new era of computing."
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:01:27 AM
    "It's been a journey of decades. From '60s number crunching, '80s productivity, '00s Internet, Today is ubiquity."
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:01:48 AM
    That's Intel's Tom Kilroy speaking
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:02:05 AM
    "User experience matters more now than ever."
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:02:52 AM
    See, Hear, Feel. That's what defines our experiences. The fuel for that is content.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:02:58 AM
    An exabyte per day of content is consumed.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:03:19 AM
    Growth projections... 19% smartphone, 33% tablet, 17% notebook.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:03:41 AM
    That's from here to 2016. Tablets apparently drive 3x the online traffic of smartphones.
  • vincent.chang 6/5/2012 6:04:40 AM
    And most of those tablets are using ARM chips.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:06:08 AM
    Intel-based smartphones: Full HD video capture and playback, 10 picture per second, Industry leading browser performance, 14 days standby power.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:06:16 AM
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:06:36 AM
    They've only briefly touched on smartphones. Now talking Windows 8 based tablets.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:07:19 AM
    They're emphasising what Intel Windows 8 tablets will let you do. Metro style AND existing apps; connected standby AND all day battery; 20+ OEM designs.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:07:48 AM
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:08:33 AM
    The opening video of the keynote was played in Full HD directly off an Intel powered Android device on stage. Clever.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:09:10 AM
    They're now showing a Full HD interactive 360 degree video, with pinch, zoom, swivel, etc. Very smooth, looked good.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:09:33 AM
    Wireless display also in their new phones.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:09:54 AM

    Tom Kilroy

  • crostron76 6/5/2012 6:10:17 AM
    Finally, android with power!
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:10:46 AM
    How does wireless display change the experience? They're about to do some live karaoke jamming. Ummm...
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:11:58 AM
    Oh dear. Gotta love weird demos. That's what keynotes are made of.
  • vincent.chang 6/5/2012 6:12:04 AM
    Wireless display sounds nice on paper, but I haven't seen too many TVs or monitors with built-in support yet.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:12:24 AM
    He went for a walk through the audience, genuinely untethered, with the lyrics to a song up on screen while he sang along coming off the phone.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:13:24 AM
    Fruit Ninja HD on a Windows 8 tablet now demoed. Was going to switch to something else, but Windows 8 has failed.
  • crostron76 6/5/2012 6:13:29 AM
    Oh dear …
  • crostron76 6/5/2012 6:13:34 AM
    Just like apple TV Intel do sell an add-
    on device though.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:15:06 AM
    Showing the full desktop mode of Windows 8 on the tablet now he's fixed it. And they're pushing this as a critical business-focused advantage over ARM.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:15:48 AM
    Kilroy: "We're working with the best app developers to make sure the tablet experience is the best on Intel."
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:16:36 AM
    Are we in the post-PC era? Intel asked the 'youth' all over the world to see what they say.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:16:55 AM
    2/3 of college students say the PC is the 'most important' device in their daily life.
  • Breakfast Tan 6/5/2012 6:16:59 AM
    Things are just getting better, flexible and more practical for users.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:16:59 AM

    Karaoke gold!

  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:17:35 AM
    Preferred device is the PC for almost everything except listening to music on a big chart from this global study they're talking about.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:18:07 AM
    Kilroy has just invoked the Ultrabook. Introduced one year ago. "Unleashing a wave of innovation."
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:18:51 AM
    Cloths just dropped to show 50 Ultrabook designs all across the stage.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:19:02 AM
  • crostron76 6/5/2012 6:19:46 AM
    LOL … I think the term Post-PC was coined by apple marketing dept.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:20:11 AM

    The Intel smartphone slide

  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:20:52 AM
    Now running the specs on how Ultrabook has evolved. Doing a nifty augmented reality explode of an Ultrabook.
  • seamus.byrne 6/5/2012 6:21:45 AM
    3rd Generation Core is officially launching today.
