This device is loaded with lots of good qualities like long battery life, wireless connectivity and best performance. This product has overcome the weaknesses shown by the preliminary models. All in all it is wonderful companion for all those who like to work in CAP, wireless LAN and WAN networks.
Next Generation Code Names
Most recent codenames like Callpella and Huron River platform are sixth and seventh generations of improvement in this magnificent system. Callpella platform was expected to launch in early 2009 but the reduced demand for chips and economic recession resulted in its delay. However it was launched in October 2009. This chipset was loaded with features like coding, decoding, videopaly back and editing. This processor was based on the Nehalem Micro Architecture. Next generation codename is Huron river Platform launched in 2010. It is seventh generation of Centrino platform. This system contains mobile express series chipset 6.The microprocessor contained in it is based on Sandy Bridge Architecture. It is full of wireless modules. If the vendors want to qualify for Intel Centrino compatibility they have to deploy all three basic components like chip set, processors and wireless network. Otherwise if they only use a processor or a wireless connectivity they would end up with products like Intel core and Celeron. Thus Centrino is a complete package and not a chipset alone.
Promotion of the Centrino
When ever people try to compare the success factors of AMD processors and Intel technologies they always end up concluding that Intel invests a lot of money for the promotion and projection of their products. This is one of the success factors for the Intel processors. Promoting a product opens new horizons of opportunity for your current product line. This also gives the viewers a lot of information about the qualities and features of the product. This is the reason why Intel has invested more than $300 million only for promoting Centrino technology. Intel mass marketing efforts are not only beneficial for them but also for those vendors who incorporate the Centrino technology in their laptops. Such vendors cannot afford to run wide scale promotion for their products. This intelligent marketing along with has also helped people to remove their confusions regarding the technology. For example those who are buying Centrino laptops are well aware that they are not buying core 2 Duo and Intel Core. They know that they are paying exactly for the Centrino label.
