James also touched upon how cloud computing is the connective tissue between compute platforms, inviting Dr. Jiren Liu, chairman and CEO of Neusoft Corporation onstage. Dr. Liu demonstrated how systems built around Intel® Cloud Builder reference architecture can enable new solutions, linking front-end client devices to back-end remote diagnostics in the health care environment to deliver service never before possible.
“Technology has changed the way we interact with our world and Intel is putting the building blocks in place, from the cloud to the smallest of devices, to deliver a truly immersive computing experience to consumers wherever they are,” said James. “Together with developers and our partners, as well as a highly-integrated combination of hardware and software, Intel believes we can help bring the best possible products to market with the broadest distribution.”
Building on the recent Intel and Nokia* news to merge the Moblin* and Maemo* open source projects into the MeeGo* Linux-based software platform, James highlighted the broad endorsement of MeeGo across the industry. MeeGo is hosted by the Linux Foundation as a fully open source project and is available to original equipment manufacturers, operating system vendors, network operators and others, targeting a wide range of devices, including next-generation smartphones, netbooks, tablets, mediaphones, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems.
In addition, James announced ISVs and developers in China can now take advantage of the Intel Atom Developer Program and submit applications for distribution through the Intel AppUpSM Center beta. James also highlighted the recent expansion of the Intel AppUp center beta for both MeeGo and Microsoft Windows* in the United States, Canada and 27 European countries. This growth gives Chinese application developers in the Intel Atom Developer Program the opportunity to reach consumers in one of the top markets for Intel Atom processor-based devices worldwide, as well as now complete sales transactions in USD, Euros or Pounds (GBP).
