Intel PXA800F (Manitoba) officially announced

Intel´s smartphone processor formerly codenamed Manitoba was officially announced in Asia. At least Reuters informed about this referring to its Hong Kong branch. As official website havenít provided information about the new chip yet, we had to refer to some south-eastern Asian sources.

So, Manitoba was given its marketing name Ė PXA800F. It is designed for new mobile handsets supporting content like online games and videoconferencing. First models on PXA800F are expected already in 2003 and the massive market attack is scheduled to 2004.

Taiwanese MiTAC and Wistron, Korean Maxon and Chinese Ningbo Bird, TCL and Legend Group became the first to declare the intention to use PXA800F in their handsets. Besides, currently Intel is negotiating with five mobile market leaders: Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Siemens and Sony Ericsson. Despite none of these has officially agreed to use PXA800F yet, the chances are great, as these companies purchase Intelís flash memory and other chips for their products.

According to Intel an PXA800F-based phone will cost about $100-200.

Despite Intel is to publish Manitoba specigications next week at 3GSM World Congress in Cannes, France, we can shed some light about some of them already now. Shipments of Intel PXA800F processors for GSM/GPRS handsets will start within several days, volume production is scheduled to Q3 2003. In over 10,000-unit quantities the processor will cost $35 per chip.

PXA800F is based on a low-power version of XScale core with 312MHz clock, GSM/GPRS analog module, 104MHz DSP, 4Mb Intel Strataflash NOR flash and 512Kb SRAM.

The chip is to be made using 0.13-micron process technology and a complex technique of making mixed analog-digital components.

According to provisional data, PXA800F-based phone with a standard 600 mAh battery will actively operate up to 3 hours and up to 300 hours in standby. Such handsets will feature color LCD displays, will support Java, Bluetooth, MP3 playback, PIM, flash cards. Some will also feature digital cameras, video playback, GPS, etc.

I guess more details about PXA800F are to follow these days.
