    Default Atom: Diamondville Part II

    Atom: Diamondville Part II

    So they've made an even smaller, lower wattage CPU, presumably for things like in smart phones.

    They're calling this one 'atom'.

    Apparently this on is supposed to get as low as 0.6w. That's not bad if you want to download something on your phone and not worry about it heating up in your purse or pocket. At least that's what I'm thinking it'll be primarily used for: Phones.

    Maybe in a lot of handheld computers -- the kind surveyors use or people who work on construction sites, where a full computer just isn't practical, but a device where you can easily access the blueprints and such.

    I also think this will turn into a lot more of the previously seen combining devices.

    More of that saving power, and therefore lower cost as well like ygolo said in the other thread.

    Is anyone else thinking, "Te for the win!" ?

    I am still waiting for my cell-phone/navigation-device/full-fledged-hand-held-pc (something that will run Linux and Windows and a Mac OS if I choose) in one device.
