Beginning by reflecting on the importance of the quickly developing MID (Mobile Internet Devices) market in todays web crazed world, he then brought everyone up to speed on how well Moorestown is coming along; comprising an ultraportable System on a Chip (SoC) codenamed 'Lincroft' which carries everything from the 45nm CPU core to the memory controller, integrated graphics and video encoding/decoding abilities.

An I/O hub codenamed 'Langwell' enriches Moorestowns flexibility and convenience with additional ports for storage and display components as well as a vast range of wireless connectivity options including 3G, WiMAX, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and mobile TV. Although a little vague for now, Moorestown is expected to put Atom to shame with a reduced power consumption by a factor of ten or more.
