Not really on-topic (but HTC and mobile device related) is HTC's latest announcement about the platform which is used for its recently announced HTC Shift UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC). So far, HTC hadn't given any details but today, at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing, HTC unveiled that its new mobile computer will be based on Intel's new Ultra Mobile platform 2007.
Based on the Intel Pentium M architecture with optimizations to significantly extend battery life within smaller form factors, the Intel Ultra Mobile platform 2007 comprises the Intel A110 processor, Intel 945GU Express chipset, and Intel ICH7U I/O controller hub.

"With its revolutionary design, advanced wireless connectivity and comprehensive software applications, the HTC Shift is strengthened by the power of Intel's innovative Ultra Mobile platform 2007," said Peter Chou, chief executive officer of HTC. "This combination provides users with the ultimate mobile computing experience." Chou added.

The HTC Shift combines the power of Windows Vista with an innovative QWERTY-based keyboard design and 3G connectivity. The HTC Shift provides all the power, functionality and connectivity busy professionals need in a sleek, portable design. Packed with advanced connectivity, the HTC Shift features high-speed global connectivity with Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA, Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi. A multimedia maven, the HTC Shift leverages Windows Media Player 11 to provide easy access to music, videos and photos.

"Intel and HTC have a long history of working together on mobile technologies. Today's announcement is another example of the two companies bringing their latest innovations together on the HTC Shift platform," said Pankaj Kedia, Director of Global Ecosystem Programs in the Ultra Mobility Group at Intel. "Intel is continuing to extend its leadership by drastically reducing the power consumption and package size while delivering high performance in its silicon roadmap, and looks forward to continued collaboration with HTC."

The HTC Shift is expected to be launched in Q3 and availability includes Europe as well as the USA.
