Intel outlines Ultrabook, tablet, smartphone plans for CES 2013

Intel has offered a sneak preview of its plans for the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, detailing its mobile-centric theme for the event.

Due to open on the 8th of January 2013, the annual CES brings together electronic and gadget manufacturers from around the world to showcase the products they think will be making a splash that year. Previous years have seen launches like Belkin's Wemo home automation system, Sharp's Freestyle Aquos portable TV, Canon's ultra-slim PowerShot 520HS digital camera and LG's 55in OLED TV.

Intel, too, has a regular presence at the event, using CES 2012 to unveil its customers' latest Ultrabook designs along with its first Atom 'Medfield'-based smartphone product.

For Intel, at least, CES 2013 looks to be more of the same: the company has announced that Intel's vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group Kirk Skaugen and general manager of the Mobile and Communications Group Mike Bell will take to the CES stage to reveal the company's progress on its mobile products over the past twelve months. As well as an update on the new wave of convertible Ultrabooks, Windows 8-based devices that can transform from a tablet into a fully-powered PC, the company will be showcasing next-generation smartphone and tablet designs based on a next-generation revision of the Intel Atom low-power processor platform.

Missing from Intel's pre-CES teaser is any mention of non-mobile products: Skaugen and Bell will be concentrating purely on laptops, tablets and smartphones, leaving the desktop market largely untouched by Intel's product announcements this year. It's a continuing trend for the company, which has little competition in the high-performance desktop processor market.

As to precisely what devices Intel will be unveiling at the event, the company is leaving that announcement to a pre-show press briefing on the 7th of January 2013.
