64-bit Celeron to debut in Q1 of next year, with rumours of dual-core abound
has received roadmaps outlining Intel’s value mobile plans. Intel is preparing to launch a pair of low-cost Celeron processors based on the current Core 2 Duo Merom architecture. The new Celeron processors will not bear Intel's Core nomenclature. These new processors are scheduled to launch in Q1'07.
Celeron M Plans
Instead of the new Core 2 Duo moniker, these Merom derivatives will be known as the Celeron M 500 series. Two models will be available initially: the Celeron M 520 and 530. These processors will be clocked at 1.60 and 1.73GHz respectively. Both will have 1MB of shared L2 cache and run on a 533MHz FSB. Intel's EMT64 and XD extensions are also supported. Manufacturing will be done on a 65nm process.

, the new Merom based Celeron M 500 series will not be dual-core
has confirmed with various Taiwanese manufacturers regarding the matter. Although the Celeron M 500 series are based on Intel’s Merom core, one processor core will be disabled on Celeron variants.
Pricing for the Celeron M 520 will be $134 in 1,000-unit lots. Pricing for the M 530 has not yet been released.

Likely because Intel want's to beat AMD accross the board in performance and price.
