Chip Shot: Intel-powered Jolla Tablet Entering New Phase of Crowdsourcing

The Intel-powered Jolla tablet, the world’s first crowdsourced tablet project, will be available for a new phase of crowdsourcing for consumers to contribute. This new phase will help lower the cost of the tablets and help introduce more options to the Jolla tablet series. For example, the 64GB option will be introduced in addition to the 32GB that was launched in the first phase. The tablet reached its first phase of crowdsourcing goal within two hours when it was announced last November. In fact, it raised over US$1.8 million, five times of its original target, in the first 21 days. The Jolla tablet is based on the Intel® Atom™ processor 3700 Series, runs on the company’s independent operating system Sailfish OS, and provides a smooth multitasking experience with Android application compatibility. The Jolla Tablet is available starting at US$219, and it is expected to ship in second quarter of 2015.

LONDON, Jan. 29, 2015 – Intel Corporation today announced the availability of its 5th generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family that provides cutting-edge features to enable a new and rapidly shifting workplace. To meet the needs of a more mobile and dynamic workforce, the latest iteration of Intel Core vPro processors offer wireless innovations, built-in security, faster performance and improved manageability that will allow workers and companies to improve their productivity and stay competitive.

With the new 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, Intel addresses three specific areas to enable a better way to work and provide a better experience for users and companies: PC design innovation, wireless display and wireless docking.

Businesses can choose from a variety of never-before-seen PC designs across 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs that offer up to twice the battery life1 and more than twice the performance1, enabling form factors that are up to three times thinner2 and 50 percent lighter2 than a laptop PC from just four years ago.

Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Intel® Pro WiDi) makes every presentation and conference room a cable-free zone. While delivering enhanced usability for business users with flexible presenter controls and privacy, it also supports key IT requirements such as wireless channel management to mitigate network congestion risk and security vulnerabilities, and the ability to efficiently update and manage adapters remotely.3

Intel® Wireless Docking allows users to be connected and ready to work the moment they walk up to their desk. This secure and manageable, wire-free technology based on Intel Wireless Gigabit technology enables systems to automatically dock to monitors, keyboards, mice and USB accessories and eliminates the need for traditional mechanical docks.3

“Our goal is to enable all users to simply work better by offsetting the growing challenges of today’s businesses,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Business Client Platforms. “With new devices based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, we aim to transform the user experience by helping them compute from virtually anywhere without the clutter and burden of wires.”

New 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors are available now from 12 leading PC manufacturers with more expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

“There is a long history of technology-led, workplace transformation,” said Genevieve Bell, vice president and Intel Fellow. “Innovations in form factors, design, and infrastructure has shifted not only the way we work, but the kind of things we can do at work.”

In addition to device innovation and workplace productivity improvements, 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors provide hardware-enhanced security and manageability capabilities. When paired with the Intel® Solid-State Drive Pro 2500 Series, IT departments can implement built-in data encryption capabilities, while users enjoy protection so smart, they’ll never feel the difference. Intel® Identity Protection helps to simplify authentication and helps ensure the right people have access to the right information at the right time.3

As workplace needs become increasingly mobile, it’s even more critical for IT to be able to keep devices healthy and protected while not impacting user productivity. Remote management over wired and wireless networks and across all device types is made possible with Intel® Active Management Technology, even if the operating system is down or the device is powered off.3

The 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor family enables workplace transformations that can result in hundreds of billions of dollars of productivity enhancements to businesses of all sizes. By removing the wires, delivering outstanding performance and battery life, and choosing the optimized form factor to meet the needs of each employee across the spectrum of innovative designs, Intel is delivering a truly optimized business platform that will change the way work is done.
