3D has been front and center for CES 2010, and Intel didn't miss the chance to talk about its involvement in the format. Otellini told the audience, "I think that 3D is the next thing that's poised to explode in the home." Besides movie, sports, video games, and concerts are going to drive consumer adoption of it, he added.
Otellini introduced a new technology called Intel Wireless Display. It allows any laptop with one of Intel's new Core-series CPUs to wirelessly connect to an adapter box that plugs into the HDMI port of any display, such as a TV. Best Buy will be marketing the technology for Intel in its stores.
Intel gets on the app store bandwagon. The AppUp Center is a customizable storefront where Netbook users can buy apps. Each Netbook maker will have its own version of the store, filled with apps that work on both Windows and Linux machines.
