Intel also announced “the largest Ultrabook showcase in the world” featuring 60 current Ultrabook models from manufacturers such as Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba, all based on third generation Intel Core processors. These include convertible Ultrabooks with a rotatable display that can be used as a tablet with touchscreen control for enjoying multimedia, or as a classic notebook with keyboard. Intel first introduced the Ultrabook category last year. These devices are characterised by a combination of secure computing and a thin, light, and elegant design. Mobile devices are taking centre stage at the Intel booth. Intel believes that mobile internet and the Cloud both offer huge opportunities and growth prospects for the entire industry. Up until 2015, Intel is expecting around 15 billion intelligent devices, which are all interconnected, exchanging data, and accessing the internet at all times.
