AMD is said to be launching the Geode LX 900 CPU with a clock speed of 667MHz in an attempt to boost its share in the ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) market, where competitors Intel and VIA Technologies are already selling processors with clock speeds of 1GHz or above...In another hand, SmartOfficenews is reporting that Samsung is abandoning the Notebook market in Australia to dedicate all its efforts to UMPC Market.
The move is part of the company's decision to focus solely on the ultra mobile PC (UMPC) platform, according to IT and CE sales director Norman Krieke.
"Samsung believes there are a number of emerging markets for the UMPC platform, such as education, health care and government," Krieke says.
"The notebook market here is extremely competitive and? we have made the internal decision to channel resources towards the UMPC," he adds.
