Intel Canoe Lake Innovation Platform  (Source: Intel)
Prototype "Canoe Lake" netbook platform is world's thinnest at 14mm

Intel has bemoaned the fact that netbooks were not as profitable for it or computer makers for a while now. Despite the fact that the company would rather sell more expensive Core-based CPUs for full notebooks, the netbook market has boomed and Intel has offered a steady stream of new hardware to support the category.

Today at Computex in Taiwan, Intel announced its plans for the Atom processor line and showed off a seriously thin concept netbook dubbed the
Canoe Lake innovation platform. Canoe Lake is only 14mm thick making it the world's thinnest netbook. Intel also highlighted the new Pine Trail Atom dual-core and Oak Trail CPUs that are optimized for netbooks and tablets.

Intel reports that the new dual-core mobile Atom processors are in production now and will be available by the winter holiday season later this year. The new parts promise more performance and a more responsive experience for the consumer.

Intel's
Oak Trail CPUs will land in early 2011 and is described as the upcoming SoC Intel Atom platform with optimizations for sleek tablet and netbook form factors. The Oak Trail parts will deliver a 50 percent reduction in average power consumption while supporting full HD video playback and supporting a variety of OS' including MeeGo, Windows, and Google OS' like Chrome.

Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanco said, "Acer will be ready with MeeGo-based mobile devices. MeeGo's open software platform will present our customers with another choice of a friendly, easy-to-use operating system. We are pleased to collaborate with Intel in our continuous drive to provide effortless technologies that empower people at work, home - anytime, anywhere."





"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
