SAN FRANCISCO May 27 Intel Corp said
on Tuesday it reached an agreement with Chinese mobile chipmaker
Rockchip to make chips for inexpensive tablets running Google
Inc's Android platform.
Under the agreement, the companies will make a quad-core
mobile chip using Intel's architecture and branding, Intel said
in a news release.
Intel, which has struggled to gain market share in
smartphones and tablets, said the chip will include 3G
connectivity and be available in the first half of 2015.
Intel said its agreement with Fuzhou, China-based Rockchip
will help the Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker gain new
customers more quickly.
