Pentium M Finds Its Place

Intel will likely add support for location-based services to its Pentium M line of mobile processors in 2006, a senior company executive says.

"Location-based services are certainly something that we've been exploring and have a lot of work going on in," says Anand Chandrasekher, vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile Platforms Group. "You can expect to see capabilities like that being brought on to the notebook marketplace, probably in the '06 timeframe would be my best estimate at this time," he says.
