Mobile Pentium 4 notebooks to start at 1.5 GHz

A mobile Pentium 4 microprocessor will be ready for notebook PCs in the first half of next year, Intel Corp. announced last week at the DEMOmobile conference in La Jolla, Calif.

The first mobile Pentium 4s will run 'faster than 1.5 GHz,' Intel vice president Frank Spindler said. The chipmaker also has made changes to its ultra-low-voltage SpeedStep Pentium III to extend notebook battery life.

Motorola Corp.'s StrongArm chip made an appearance at DEMOmobile in the new, $600 Hewlett-Packard Jornada 560 series of Pocket PCs, the first with the Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 operating system.

Pocket PC 2002 has pocket versions of Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, Terminal Services Client, Media Player, Reader and other applications.
