computer/intellogo.jpgIf you haven’t yet heard the name CentrinoTM, Intel wants to make sure that you hear it soon. This is the first time that Intel has branded a combination of technologies under one name. The technologies include a newly designed microprocessor, integrated wireless capability (Wi-Fi 802.11) as well as related chipsets and software.

The CentrinoTM mobile technology will make it possible to create thinner and lighter notebook computers with built-in wireless capability, extended battery life and improved performance. These components are designed, optimized and validated by Intel to maximize the wireless mobile computing experience. Personal computers with CentrinoTM mobile technology were displayed recently at the 2003 Consumer Electronics Show, and showed outstanding mobile performance. Centrino-based systems are scheduled to be introduced later in the first half of 2003.

The new Centrino mobile technology brand name will be represented by a new logo carrying the famous Intel Inside® mark. The logo features a striking magenta color and a completely new shape. Intel says that the new shape suggests flight, mobility, and forward movement. If you haven’t seen it yet, you are sure to see it soon!
